Hospice at Home would like to thank Wigton Rugby Club and the Charity Wigton Shop Manager Emma Oliver, for attending the launch of our new Clothes and Textile Recycling Bank which is situated in the Wigton Rugby Club car park. This is the second bank which has been established following the success of the initial bank which is at Valley Court, Barras Lane Industrial Estate, Dalston where the Hospice at Home Office is located.
The facilities are the ideal location to donate unwanted clothes, shoes, accessories, bedding and curtains which will be forwarded for recycling. Soiled rags, bric a brac, pillows and duvets cannot be taken. The Wigton community continually support the work of Hospice at Home and the Charity have been overwhelmed by the generosity given following the launch of the new Shop located at 9 King Street, 6 months ago. The Shop Team also would like to thank everyone for their commitment and are also keen to welcome donations that are suitable for sale.
As a charity we rely on the kindness and generosity of our local community, by donating items to these recycling facilities this will enable us to continue providing vital hospice care in the home of our local community, all of our services are free of charge and our aim of providing More Care for More People is being made possible by the kindness of our supporters, whilst also helping the community and environment.
The Charity would like to thank the Cumbria Community Foundation for supporting this initiative at Wigton and also to John Cook Signs for providing the colourful graphics on both Banks which includes the nationally recognised sunflower symbol signifying hospice care.
