Bishop’s Move gives communities a helping hand

Apr 09, 2017
Bishop’s Move’s Edinburgh branch has embarked on a new charity partnership with Diane Janczyk and Clair McLaren, co-founders of ‘The Button Box‘, in the Midlothian area.

The innovative charity helps parents in the Midlothian area by collecting donations of children’s clothing and holding events throughout the year to give families the chance to access free clothing to support their growing families.

“Building strong local communities is about understanding, appreciating, and caring for the people that live within them,” said co-founder of The Button Box, Diane Janczyk.

Bishop’s Move began working with The Button Box in the latter part of 2016 by collecting and storing the donated clothes, which so far has proved very popular and directly benefitted the branch’s local community.

Meanwhile, Bishop’s Move’s national ‘De Clutter & Donate’ scheme continues to raise money for national charities such as the British Heart Foundation, Cancer Research UK, and Sense and Chest Heart Stroke Scotland. Its emphasis for 2017 is to directly support local communities by working with a network of smaller local charities.

Chris Marshall, Bishop’s Move’s Marketing Director said, “One of the reasons I think it is so rewarding for businesses and our employees to help the local communities around them is that the results are so visible and significant. It’s inspiring to see the donations making a real difference that can be seen, such as helping the local school buy a new minivan. It is our intention to support organisations in our local communities who will greatly benefit from the donations from the ‘De-clutter & Donate’ scheme or through our active sponsorship of local schemes.”
