Samuel's Charity is a registered national charity (no. 1164034) that provides toys, treats and useful hospital equipment to children's hospital wards around the UK. The presents give seriously ill children a much-needed break from what is often a painful and scary experience in hospital. Examples of these treats include: video games, toys, free Netflix and TV, craft and sensory equipment, furniture and even electric ride-in cars. The charity also provides medical equipment that can make a big difference to a child's treatment, such as Accuvein handheld scanners to make injections easier and less painful.
We began our partnership in November 2017 to provide reliable monthly funding to help support the charity and to increase awareness of the incredible work it does. We distribute charity bags – designed to meet new ASA guidelines – to houses across the UK in licensed council areas. All of the collected items are sorted in our warehouse and sold onto buyers in Eastern Europe who will sell them on to be used again. From house to house collections, £75 made per tonne will be donated back to the charity, and from our textile banks, £120 made per tonne.
