We care about the environment. Many of our supporters do, too, so we aim to provide fundraising options that are environmentally friendly. In all aspects of our work we endeavour to practise the Three Rs of environment protection: reduce, recycle, reuse.
We compost as much kitchen waste as we can and from our offices we recycle waste paper and cardboard. Goods sold in our shops have minimal packaging, if at all. Our gardeners shred wood waste and recycle the chippings as mulch for the Hospice grounds, or sell them to raise funds. Collection bins and recycling envelopes are located throughout the hospice and in our charity shops.
We have created an Energy Forum which looks at ways of reducing our impact on the environment. By managing waste effectively and making better use of resources, we make your money go further!
Don’t throw away good quality clothes, toys, furniture or anything else you don’t want. They can be used by someone else. If you’re having a clear-out please donate to our shops any books, CDs, DVDs or household items.
If you would like to recycle to raise funds for The Rowans Hospice please contact the fundraising team on 023 9223 8531 or email email@example.com
