Our fabulous Charity girls are led by Joyce Ward a veteran fundraiser and all round angel! She first started collecting charity items from The Stock Exchange in April 1998. As many of you will already know The Stock Exchange keeps items on display for a total of 5 weeks. We will then send unsold items to charity unless we are told not to. Joyce and the her team of volunteers have been picking up the unsold items every week since. Joyce and her 12 volunteers sort through all the donated items and have a charity sale once a month.
All proceeds are donated directly to charity. Its worth stressing that these ladies are volunteers and will donate to causes they have been affected by. It means they are dedicated and rather passionate about what they do and a number of different charities have benefitted over the years.
We recently had a request for some of our children’s clothes destined for charity, to be given to some Stock Exchange customers that were heading to Zambia. We’re so happy that we did, it was great to see their smiling faces, so thank you to all that left their items to go charity. You made some children very happy indeed. You can read more here.
The Stock Exchange has been supporting a broad range of charities for over 40 years. When you bring items in for sale, you have a choice at the end of it’s time on our rails, whether you want to have the items returned or whether they would like to donate them to a charity.
We’d like to start giving you an insight into how much money is raised and where the money goes.
