Procter & Gamble give their time to the Woking & Sam Beare Hospice Retail Warehouse

 
Employees from Procter & Gamble in Weybridge took time out of their day on Thursday 14th July 2016 to participate in voluntary work at the Woking & Sam Beare Hospice Shop Distribution Centre.

Ten employees joined forces with regular staff and volunteers at the warehouse, to help with sorting and organising donations, unloading delivery vans and tagging and labelling clothes ready for distribution to 16 charity shops around the Surrey area.

The Hospices are the company’s charity of the year and as a result were the first port of call for Helen Trotman, whose team were keen to spend their Away Day doing something worthwhile in the community as part of the P&G Community Connect programme, which allows companies to volunteer as part of their team building days.

When asked about her experience of the day, Helen said: “We were delighted to help the Woking & Sam Beare Hospice Warehouse as part of our P&G Community Connect programme. My team and I learned a huge amount about the challenging supply chain of charity retail and we had a great time sorting through the clothing donations. A huge thanks to everyone at Woking & Sam Beare Hospice Warehouse for a fun and eye-opening experience.”

When asked what most surprised or interested her about the experience, P&G employee and team member, Diane Gray explained “I was really impressed with the online auction sales section because it opens up a great way of reaching the public and ensuring Woking and Sam Beare are able to raise as much money as possible. We were able to help organise the auction section. It’s really rewarding being able to make a difference through the P&G Community Connect Programme."
Employees from Procter & Gamble in Weybridge took time out of their day on Thursday 14th July 2016 to participate in voluntary work at the Woking & Sam Beare Hospice Shop Distribution Centre.
 
The addition of a grant of £1000 from P&G, which the team were allowed to apply for on behalf of Woking & Sam Beare Hospices, ensured the day was hugely profitable not just in donated time but also in funds raised for the Hospices.

Maggie Eames, Warehouse Manager, organised the teams on the day and said: “We really enjoyed meeting Helen and her team; the day went really well and we had some great workers helping out. They wrote down their thoughts on charity retail both prior to starting and then at the end of their shift and it was very interesting to read; I think some of them were very surprised at what the work entails! Of course, the extra £1,000 was also very gratefully received and will be put to good use by the hospices.”

The warehouse team work hard to ensure that only the best quality stock makes it to the shelves. Every single item donated by supporters will first be passed through the centre, which is situated on Lansbury Estate in Knaphill, to ensure that it is fit for re-sale. It is then sold in whatever way is most likely to get the best return, which might be on ebay, at an auction house or via a retail outlet.
