Salisbury Oxfam is delighted to announce that Oxfam Collects at Work is coming to Salisbury, following its success elsewhere in the UK.

Oxfam Collects at Work makes it so easy for your employees to donate their unwanted things to Oxfam as part of their working week. Oxfam will then arrange to pick these up and bring them to our shops in Catherine Street.

We tell each of your employees how much money their donations raise and the difference that could make to the communities we work with.
Plus we will provide you with a corporate report which lets you know the total the whole company has raised.

This scheme has already been highly successful in other parts of the country. In July 2010, St. Albans City and District Council signed up to the scheme. Their employees efforts have since raised nearly £5000 for Oxfam and prevented 708kg from going to landfill (http://www.stalbans.gov.uk/council-and-democracy/press-room/items/2011/December-2011/Councilraisesnearly5KforOxfam.aspx).

You can find out more information on the Oxfam GB website and read about other businesses using the scheme. Then when you’re ready you can contact Salisbury Oxfam (email [email protected] or phone 01722 337187 and ask for Michelle or Richard). Alternatively, you can request someone from Oxfam contacts your business.
