St Luke’s Hospice is teaming up with fashion retailer New Look this summer to offer Winsford 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, and St Luke’s in Winsford Cross shopping precinct is one of the shops 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 Hospice shop in Winsford Cross shopping precinct.

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 Winsford Cross, which is only a short walk from the hospice shop.

Steven Holmes, retail operations manager for St Luke’s Hospice, said: “We are delighted to have the support of New Look and are very excited to be launching this discount scheme with them in Winsford.

“One bag of donated goods is worth an average of £19 to St Luke’s, so by taking part in this scheme you will not only be supporting the Hospice but bagging yourself a 20% discount from New Look as well.”

Mark Axon, Retail Director for New Look, added: “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.“

Every item bought in one of St Luke’s charity shops helps the Hospice to provide care for local people and their families living with a life-limiting illness. The shop in Winsford Cross sells clothing, accessories, bric-a-brac and books. For more information about St Luke’s Hospice and the care it provides, please visit www.slhospice.co.uk
