A few weeks' back I mentioned on another thread that I'd taken some bits and bobs to SCOPE, a local charity shop. They take your contact details and the goods are bar-coded so they can track how much they are sold for.
I've just received an email saying that they raised £233.33! Plus 25% Gift Aid.
I can't believe that my cast-offs and junk raised so much
This feedback encourages me to have a further clear out!
I donate things to a local hospice charity shop and they send an email every month telling me how much my cast offs have raised. I think if you gift aid they have to let you know how much has been raised. Last year my things raised almost £400.
