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.
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.
