SARH staff donate clothes and books to raise money for Greenhall Nursery
A clear out of unwanted items from the wardrobes and bookshelves of staff and customers at Stafford and Rural Homes has helped raise over £200 for Greenhall Nursery and Key Learning Centre.
Over the last week staff brought over 60 bags of unwanted clothes and books to SARH’s headquarters, at Staffordshire Technology Park, and similar collections were also held by customers at many of SARH’s Independent Living Schemes.
All of the books and clothes were then delivered and exchanged at Cash 4 Clothes in Stafford, on Friday, May 31.
“The amount of clothes and books donated was amazing, I didn’t think we could fill up a van but in the end we needed two to make the collection,” said Mark Nadin, a tradesman at SARH, who helped to organise the collection.
The money raised from the books and clothes, along with a collection for a dress down day for SARH staff, will go to Greenhall Nursery and Key Learning Centre, which provides support for pre-school children with a range of learning and physical disabilities and their families in Stafford.
The nursery is SARH’s nominated charity for 2013-14.
“Our staff and customers are always very supportive of our fundraising efforts and this has been a really fantastic effort yet again. On behalf of SARH I’d like to thank everyone who made a donation and helped to raise such a wonderful amount for a great cause,” said Jo Hough, Head of Organisation Development for SARH.
