ASOS are back in town
Staff from online fashion retailer ASOS have been back in the Noah’s Ark Children’s Hospice Barnet and Borehamwood charity shops; using their expertise to sell existing stock and bringing along plenty of exclusive samples that are still available to buy.
The events on 31 August and 1 and 4 September were part of their Charity Shop Challenge, where they invite corporate supporters to volunteer in their shops.
The Barnet team organised a raffle with prizes including photo shoots, beauty treatments and restaurant meals – tickets are on sale in the shop until the end of September.
ASOS have so far raised more than £1,100 from the days, and will be back in the Barnet shop on Friday 8 September.
Noah’s Ark Community Fundraiser, Daisy Wilson said: “ASOS are always fantastic to work with. They bring enthusiasm, creativity and some fantastic samples with them, all of which help to make the days such a success.”
Organisations taking part in the challenges contribute by using their sales and design skills to sell shop items and transform the window displays. In return their employees get first-hand experience of working as a team to run a charity shop – developing project management and customer-facing skills along the way.
Ben Catt from ASOS said: “It’s a brilliant opportunity to give a day back to the community and help to support families in the local area.”
Their next event on 8 September will begin at 9.30am in the Barnet shop. Future challenge days will be advertised on Twitter and Facebook.
