MAKING a donation of unwanted items to St Luke’s Hospice is now easier than ever, thanks to the support of Totley Pharmacy.
The pharmacy in Baslow Road is launching its own donation station, where St Luke’s supporters will be able to drop off unwanted items of clothing, books, DVDs, CDs, bric-a-brac and household items which will then go directly to the chain of 14 St Luke’s shops throughout the city.
The donation station will be officially launched by Sheffield United Manager Chris Wilder on March 1 at 3pm and the event will be open to the public to attend to meet Chris and bring their own donations for the St Luke’s shops.
“We are very proud to support St Luke’s, a charity that supports our core values of providing the very best care,” said Totley Pharmacy owner Tajinder Singh.
“We believe that our donation station will give St Luke’s much greater access to the community in Totley and Dore as there is currently not a venue in the area where the public can donate items to the St Luke’s shops. We are proud to host this donation station to support St Luke’s and encourage everyone who joins us on the day to bring any unwanted items that could help their work”.
“Furthermore we are delighted that Chris Wilder will be along to help us celebrate its launch. He and his family have received the support of St Luke’s in the past so have first-hand knowledge of how important the charity’s work is.”
St Luke’s Corporate Fundraising manager Jack Kidder added: “This is just one more great way that Totley Pharmacy has found to support the levels of care we give to all the people of Sheffield.
“We are confident that Totley Pharmacy’s customers will find the donation station the perfect way to support St Luke’s and that it will allow the local community to donate their retail items in a convenient manner. Thank you to the Totley Pharmacy team and Chris Wilder for his exceptional support”
