Charity Shop Challenge

- The Lottery Team

A Small Step in the Right Direction

Here at Your Hospice Lottery, we really care about the environment!

We are constantly hearing about the state of the planet and that if we don’t make a change there will be catastrophic consequences. With crazy weather due to the warming climate and rising sea levels, it can feel a little overwhelming. Sometimes it can be better to focus on small tasks. To take things one step and a time, rather than focusing on the bigger picture.

So, as a team we asked ourselves a question; how can we do our bit to make a difference?

Making a Difference

We decided that we would set ourselves a challenge. To come to our work social in clothes that have been bought in a charity shop. To showcase that you can still be stylish when you reuse! Charity shops are a fantastic way to give yourself a wardrobe refresh, without harming the planet. Something that is old and boring to someone, is fresh and new to another!

It is clear to see that you do not need to buy brand new to look and feel amazing. The team have showcased some brilliant outfit choices. They have not only gone green by shopping in a charity shop, they have also helped raise vital funds for the charity too.
