Buxton's Air Ambulance shop opens early for donations

Buxton’s Air Ambulance shop is opening early for donations of items ahead of trading resuming on Monday.

Thursday, 8th April 2021, 9:30 am

The Spring Gardens store will be taking donations until the end of business on Friday.

Charity Head of Retail Gemma Ingram said: “We’re aware that our supporters may have been holding onto donations for a few months now, and with trading starting again next week, we wanted to give people in Derbyshire an opportunity to drop off their items in a Covid-secure way using a pre-booked appointment system.”

The enforced closures of the stores have seen the charity lose over £2.2 million in income.

“To donate preloved goods and help our service, all people need to do is give their local store a call to book a drop off time, and for any donations received they will receive a bounce back voucher with 10% discount to be used in store this August 2021,” explained Gemma.
