We like getting involved in charitable initiatives, so when our customer Bishop’s Move, one of the UK’s largest removals companies, mentioned their proposed campaign with Scope, we offered to join the partnership and promote the campaign online. Scope is a UK charity focused on promoting equal opportunities for disabled people and their families. Bishop’s Move are helping the cause by collecting and donating unwanted items from their removals.
Moving house can be a stressful time, not to mention a massive upheaval, so it’s unsurprising that valuable items can often end up being abandoned, left in skips or taken to the tip. Recycling or donating to charity is not always at the top of the agenda during a house move, but a wealth of forgotten and neglected valuable items often turn up. Bishop’s Move want to use these items to help support the disability charity, offering a ‘De-Clutter Service’ to each of their customers. Customers will receive a Scope donation bag, which they can fill with unwanted items including:
They will collect the bag when they help the customer to move house, and donate the items to Scope, who can distribute it to their stores nationwide. It will help Scope to raise some much-needed funds, and assist them in making a difference to people’s lives. The money will be used to help Scope provide schools, skills development centres and independent living to disabled people.
Bishop’s Move carry out 12,000 removals a year, so we are expecting some fantastic results from this brilliant partnership. Look out for news of an exciting launch event coming soon or find out more about Bishop’s Move and check out their Facebook page for useful information on de-cluttering your home.
The partnership is being supported by the whole team here, who work closely with Bishop’s Move on their social media and marketing. Our aim is to maximise awareness of the “de-clutter service”, by co-ordinating the activities of the SiteVisibility network, as well as the Scope and Bishop’s Move teams, to ensure the campaign gets the most coverage possible.
