Turning clutter into cash with Doree Bonner

Jan 29, 2017
Doree Bonner International has joined with Cancer Research UK to launch a new initiative that will generate additional funds for the charity’s life-saving work to help beat cancer

The company is now collecting unwanted items from customers and selling them to raise cash for the charity.  

Doree Bonner customers, moving either in the UK or internationally, can box up all the unwanted possessions that they would like to donate to Cancer Research UK. On moving day, Doree Bonner will make sure that the donations are removed and taken to a Cancer Research UK shop where they will be sold to raise funds. All the profit from the sale of these items will go towards Cancer Research UK’s life-saving research.   

“We are delighted to be working in partnership with Cancer Research UK and to have found a solution to our customers’ problems of easily disposing of items they no longer need and putting these to such a good use,” said Geoff Watson, Joint Managing Director of Doree Bonner.  “We move literally thousands of households each year so there is massive potential to generate donations for such a deserving charity.  To kick start the initiative we have asked all our 190 staff across the UK to donate their unwanted items. Our customers have also responded very positively and over the next few months we will be striving to maximise the donations and look forward to seeing how much they will raise.“  

Bina de Wilde, Retail Business Development and Innovation at Cancer Research UK said: “This is a very welcome partnership for our near-600 Cancer Research UK shops. Doree Bonner is offering a really helpful extra service to their customers whilst giving us great finds for ours. We are particularly delighted that this partnership will provide us with high quality homeware and small electrical items, as well as clothing, which our shoppers will love.”
