Out with the old to Help Cancer Research UK
THOUSANDS of shoppers have taken up the challenge to raise bags of money for Cancer Research UK by dropping off bags of unwanted goods at a special Donation Stations in Great Yarmouth.
The Donation Station is a simple way for customers and employees to bag up their unwanted items and bring them to a central drop-off point.
There are two such stations in the area, with one in Tesco Extra, on Pasteur Road, and Sainsbury’s, St Nicholas Road.
Every bag donated could be worth up to �30 to Cancer Research UK.
Stephanie Hambling, community champion, Great Yarmouth said: “There is still time to be a part of this fantastic initiative.
“We’ve already seen some great support from the community and I’m sure that over this next week we can pull together and achieve our goal of more than 3000 bags.
“I hope that even more people will use their shopping trip as an excuse to clear some space in their wardrobe, while raising vital funds for Cancer Research UK.”
