HIOWAA is lordshill storeâ€™s â€œCharity of the Yearâ€ and at the end of October we had a two day collection at the store. Â The first day we brought along the aircraft pod, but unfortunately the weather was not that brilliant so we could not open it up. However, it was notice by a multitude of people and was warmly received by many others.Â
On the second day we carried on collecting money, as well as promoting our recycling scheme as Lordshill have just had a textile bank placed in their car park. We were joined by Danielle from Bag It Up, and after giving loads and loads of our pink and green bags out, the staff of Sainsburyâ€™s wheeled out their filled bags for the textile bin, they have collected over 50 bags of clothes and shoes â€“ Fantastic! For the months of August and September we received overÂ Â£30,000 to the charity from all the recycling banks in Hampshire & Isle of Wight. We had a great time at the store and would like to thank everyone for making us feel so wanted and welcome.
