Leading estate agent, Hamptons has announced it will launch its new Move & Give initiative in support of Earth Day on 22nd April and in partnership with removals partner, Doree Bonner International, and charity partner, Mind.
As part of their ongoing commitment to protect the planet we call home and support local communities, Hamptons will be offering its customers who use the Doree Bonner International removals service the opportunity to donate unwanted clothes, homeware, entertainment, electronics, and non-perishable foods, to local foodbanks and Mind charity shops as part of the same service. Not only will this give their customers a convenient and free way of removing unwanted items from their home when they move, but it will also benefit local communities through the sharing of food items and the rehoming of unwanted goods.
Hamptons is the first estate agent to offer this tried and tested service to customers through removal partner, Doree Bonner International. Lesley Cairns, Managing Director at Hamptons:
“At Hamptons we are committed to improving the lives of our customers. We recognise that at times moving can be stressful and we want to make every stage of this process as easy as possible. Move and Give will enable us to offer our customers a hassle free way of disposing of unwanted household items accumulated when moving home, whilst also helping to protect the planet by reducing waste. We are thrilled to announce this new initiative, not only because of what it offers our customers and what it can do for our environment but because it also allows us to come together to help local communities across our network. We have been working closely with both Doree Bonner International and Mind for some time and we are delighted to be able to expand these relationships and work together to have a positive impact on our customers’ moving journey, our environment, and those in need of support during difficult times. Since May 2022, Hamptons has raised over £37,000 for Mind through fundraisers across Hamptons branches and colleagues taking on physical challenges. This year, alongside continued colleague fundraising, a team from Hamptons will be taking on the National Three Peaks challenge in aid of Mind.”
Jason Herbert, Group Managing Director at Doree Bonner International:
“We are delighted to be working in partnership with Hamptons and Mind, and to have found a solution to our customer’s problems of easily disposing of items they no longer need, by putting these to such good use.
We have worked in partnership with Hamptons for many years now, with hundreds of their clients being quoted and using our services each year, meaning there is massive potential to generate donations for such a deserving charity.
To kick start the initiative we have also asked our staff across the UK to donate their unwanted items, which has attracted an outpouring of donations already! Our customers have also responded very positively and over the next few months we will be striving to maximise the donations and look forward to seeing how much they will raise in pursuit of a good cause.”
Charlotte Porter, Head of Corporate Partnerships at Mind, said:
“We are thrilled to be a part of the Move & Give initiative and are so thankful to both Hamptons and Doree Bonner for their support.
“We have 160 Mind shops embedded in the heart of local communities across England and Wales and are so grateful for all of the donations we receive. The pandemic and the cost-of-living crisis has taken a brutal toll on the nation’s mental health, and we are in the midst of a mental health crisis. That’s why donations are needed now more than ever, so we can be there for as many people who need us as possible. By purchasing donations in one of our Mind shops, you are helping to support our services, and the campaigning we do to ensure that the one in four of us who experience a mental health problem each year, do not face it alone.”
