Shropdoc's January regifting
Shropdoc teams are supporting the Severn Hospice ‘Regift It’ campaign - which offers a new home to Christmas presents that can’t be returned.
Severn Hospice shops across Shropshire, Telford and Mid Wales reopened on December 27th asking supporters to regift presents that can’t be used or returned to their shops and turn them into gifts of care.
From January 3rd we set up an area here at Shropdoc to collect any items our staff and visitors wanted to regift - and we will be passing them onto our local Severn Hospice shops.
Severn Hospice Head of Retail Carla Siswick said it is the thought that counts and by regifting through the Severn Hospice shops they can carry that kind thought forward and turn those presents into care for local families.
She says: “You can never feel guilty for regifting a present to a charity shop!”
The charity has 31 shops across Shropshire, Telford & Wrekin and Mid Wales raising funds for the hospice and its services.
Kayleigh Davies, head of HR at Shropdoc, said: “Severn Hospice is a charity which is very close to the hearts of the people here at Shropdoc.
“We enjoy a strong relationship with them as 15 per cent of our home visits involve end-of-life care.”
The hospice, which cares for people living with incurable illness, is proud to promote its sustainable scheme and will accept homewares, bric-a-brac, linen, toys and games, books, clothing, handbags, shoes and accessories.
A national survey revealed one in four people receives an unsuitable gift at Christmas.
All the care provided by the hospice is free of charge but is not without cost. Severn Hospice shoppers and donors contribute an incredible £1.5 million towards the important care and support it provides to those who need it most during the most heart-breaking of times.
