You may have seen a purple wheelie bin on your high street – fear not, it’s not Doctor Who’s Tardis – BBC Radio London

Scope Area Manager, Lara Woolston talked about the phased reopening of Scope charity shops and called for donations to be put into the purple wheelie bins outside the shops. (18.30 mins into programme)

Our shops are starting to reopen from 15 June, so it’s nearly time to bring in those items that you cleared out during lockdown! Now more than ever Scope shops need your donations so we can be there for disabled people.  

This year there is a significant shortfall in donations to Scope because our shops have been closed. We urgently need to generate 150,000 bags of donated stock, which will raise £2.2 million. To help solve this problem, we are running a campaign called Save it for Scope.
