This year, Second Hand September is back, with none other than Michaela Coel being the face of Oxfam’s campaign. The goal to educate is the same, but the challenge has been made more flexible so participants can challenge themselves to shop only second hand for their own length of time.
These awards have been adapted to recognise the huge achievements and herculean effort to deal with lockdown and the phased reopening of charity retail during 2020.
The charity opened its third shop, ECHO, on Saturday 5th September, and the sales on the first day exceeded their record! ECHO promises an experience unlike any other charity shop, with its focus on sustainability.
This call follows the announcement that £1.32 billion of funding for the COVID-19 Business Grants remains unspent.
UK environmental charity TRAID’s twelfth charity shop is located in the heart of Lewisham and integrates sustainability in its design and build including recycled mannequins, non-solvent paints, use of sustainable materials like cork and bamboo, green energy, 100% LED lighting and reclaimed window glass and steel.
We are delighted to announce that we will be running a prize draw for all delegates who book onto the Build Back Better Conference in September. Our three wonderful sponsors, Acopia, Eproductive and The Charity Retail Consultancy have each donated one prize worth £500.
