Make a Referral Donate Now

Customers of Ashgate Hospice’s Chesterfield shop will be offered a New Look voucher when they donate a bag of pre-loved clothing as part of a new, nationwide fundraising partnership.  

The partnership, called Give Back, Feel Good is being jointly run by New Look and national charity, Hospice UK, and encourages people to donate high quality pre-loved clothing in return for a discount code.   

Shoppers who donate clothing to Ashgate’s Chesterfield shop in South Street will be able to claim the New Look discount of 15%.  

The campaign aims to support Ashgate, including more than 40 other hospices across the UK, with much needed donations, that will help provide care and support to people with a palliative condition or at the end of life.  

Laura Stevens, Head of Retail at Ashgate Hospice, said: “We’re so delighted to be involved with New Look and Hospice UK’s Give Back, Feel Good campaign.   

“Our shops have to raise around £3 million in sales each year to ensure we’re able to continue caring for our patients and their families, so we rely heavily on the support of the wonderful local community.   

“Every item of clothing donated to us – whether it’s a dress you’ve only worn once or last season’s football shirt – makes such a huge difference.

“Any initiative that encourages people to donate high quality pre-loved clothing to hospices is something we’d proudly be part of – and we hope to see some new supporters donating items at our Chesterfield shop over the coming weeks.” 

Hospice UKs Director of Income Generation, Catherine Bosworth said:  “Charity shops are a lifeline to hospices up-and-down the country, allowing local communities to support them to provide much-needed to care to those who need it most. 

We are really pleased to be working with New Look on the ‘Give Back, Feel Good’ partnership, giving people the chance to raise vital funds, which hospices rely on to be able to offer outstanding care to the communities they serve. 

The pandemic has really highlighted the crucial role hospices play for people at the end of life, and their families. Hospice UK continues to support hospices across the country, working alongside the NHS, to make sure people get the care they need, now and into the future.”  

Ashgate Hospice is currently calling for the urgent support of the community as the charity expects to be under increased pressure this winter due to coronavirus and winter flu circulating at the same time.  

The hospice is asking the community to support its Winter Appeal and help it to get through the difficult months ahead – ensuring the hospice can continue to provide compassionate end of life care at a crucial time and support the wider health system as it did last year.
