Donation Sorting Team Challenge

Our charity shops and the income they generate support us to deliver and develop the services we can offer to patient in need. You and your staff team can offer a helping hand by taking on our ‘Donation Sorting Team Challenge’, divided into teams you will sort through the many items donated by the generous people of South Lanarkshire and surrounding areas, preparing them for sales floor.

The challenge – which team can prepare the most! – More items for sale – More income for the hospice.
