Unicare start 2015 on a charity donation high!

No better way to start a new year than knowing you are doing some good. That’s definitely how we feel here at Unicare at the moment after tallying up our clothes recycling donations to our partner charities. 

We ended 2014 on a positive with our charity family flourishing when we welcomed Scottish Cancer Support on board! Scottish Cancer Support offer support cancer patients and loved ones throughout Scotland. Should they need financial support, transport or a respite holiday, Scottish Cancer Support will do anything within their power to help!

They joined Coping with Cancer North East who we have been in partnership with since 2010. They offer support to the cancer community at times when it is most needed, at diagnosis, during treatment and in end of life situations.

In 2012 our charity family grew again when National Kidney Federation joined us. NKF is a national kidney charity run by kidney patient for kidney patients. Unlike other kidney charities, NKF has only 2 roles; campaigning for improvements to renal provision & treatment and national patient support services.

Next on board was Childhood Cancer Parents Alliance. They promote childhood cancer awareness, support, research and advocacy that focuses fully on the best interest of children, teenagers, young adults and their families.They joined us in 2013 and in just over a year are already reaping the rewards from our clothes recycling partnership. 

With all these donations put together we have donated a massive £377,868!!

And let’s not forget that our clothes recycling work doesn’t stop at charities. We also help schools, clubs and youth organisations with their fundraising through our project EcoKids. EcoKids is a free and easy fundraising scheme designed to raise money through clothes recycling for schools, PTA’s and youth organisations. 

EcoKids launched in 2010 and so far we have helped schools, ptas and clubs nationwide raise £574,574!!

If you know a school or club who you think would benefit from fundraising through clothes recycling tell them about EcoKids and direct them to the website www.ecokidsproject.co.uk

When we tallied up our charity donations and EcoKids donations were absolutely astounded. Since 2010 when we first partnered with Coping with Cancer and EcoKids was born, we have raised almost £1 million!!. We are over the moon that we have been able to raise so much and help make a difference to charities, schools, ptas and clubs nationwide!
