Birmingham present sale update

Posted by stuff4sam on February 19, 2007

The final total of the Birmingham sale and raffle was £150! Big thanks to all involved, especially Sally for organising it all.

Plans are also afoot to set up a book box akin to the Peterborough and London successes. If these ongoing sales are anything to go by, we’ll be hitting the £19,000 mark any day!

It’s amazing how much money you can make from donated secondhand books, CDs, videos and DVDs. The total raised from books (50p a go) is now around £1500! Not bad for nine months worth of donations.

Why not set one up in your office – it’s easy! All you need is a communal space where people wait for kettles to boil, some books to get you started and somewhere for people to leave the money. People will donate books, buy new ones and probably donate them once read. It’s an easy way to raise money for stuff4sam and recycle your unwanted things at the same time! What are you waiting for?

Let us know what you’re doing at

More thank you’s

Big thanks go out to two Day Centres in Peterborough who have given us donations.

The Cresset Day Centre and Copeland Day Centre donated £43.00 and £33.00 respectively. They are attended by the father of one of the receptionists at the Peterborough office, Vivien Punter. The people who attend – all elderly – put in their small change and at the end of a certain time, the money is donated to a charity they wish to support.

Thank you to all concerned.
