At HUUB we like to think of ourselves as a big-hearted business and do a lot to help raise money for charity, especially within the local business community. This time, we can’t do it alone and need a little help from our fellow businesses and all you customers out there.
So, what is Charity Store Wars? - I hear you ask. Business in the Community has paired businesses with local charities at random, and then each company is allocated a pop-up charity shop on June 1st 2018. Fundraising on the day can include selling items, raffles or tombola’s and is designed to be a fun and relaxed day.
Nick Tooley, organiser and Business Connector for Derby, told East Midlands Business News: “Businesses are encouraged to be as creative as possible with the Store Wars event to raise as much money as they can use their marketing expertise and businesses skills – I’m hoping that they will be thinking outside the box.”
HUUB have been paired with Shoe Aid, and we will have a stall on Derby Market Hall. If you have anything to donate that we can sell to the people of Derby, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org who can send you a prepaid postage label. If you are local come down and see us on the day, and see if you can grab an absolute bargain!
