Phyllis Tuckwell is teaming up
with fashion retailer New Look this
summer to offer Fleet shoppers an extra big thank you for helping the charity.
New Look is launching a new customer discount initiative to support
hospice care by encouraging more people to donate goods to local hospice shops,
Tuckwell’s shop in Fleet is one of those chosen to pilot the scheme between
21st July-14th September.
The high street store will be offering a 20% discount voucher to anyone
who drops in a full bag of donations at the Phyllis Tuckwell shop on 279 Fleet
Road, Fleet. Under the scheme, running in partnership with national charity Hospice UK, donors will receive a voucher
which they will be able to spend at New Look’s store in Fleet, which is only a
short walk from the Phyllis Tuckwell shop.
“We are really excited to announce this fantastic offer to our
supporters, and would like to thank New Look for supporting local hospice care
so generously,” said Barry Young, Retail Operations Manager at Phyllis Tuckwell
“New Look is very excited about this new partnership with Hospice UK to
encourage our customers to donate their once loved clothes to their local
hospice shop. As a company, we’re really keen to develop stronger links on our
local high streets. We have a three-year commitment to fundraise for the
amazing work of hospices around the UK and this new initiative helps us to take
this to the next level, building stronger relationships in local communities
and doing what we can to reduce the amount of clothing waste that ends up in
landfill,” said Mark Axon, Retail Director, New Look.
bought in one of Phyllis Tuckwell’s shops will help the charity to provide supportive
and end of life care for local people who are living with an advanced or
terminal illness, such as cancer. As the NHS/Government only covers 20% of its costs,
Phyllis Tuckwell has to raise over £20,000 a day to be able to offer all of its
services, which are given free of charge to its patients and their families.
Tuckwell’s shops sell clothing, accessories and jewellery, household items and
bric-a-brac, books, CDs, DVDs, toys and games. For more information about
