You can now donate to Bury Hospice when you sell to webuybooks!
Here at webuybooks, we have a feature on our website and app, that allows you to donate money to a charity of your choice without spending a penny! All you have to do is sell your unwanted books, CDs, DVDs and games to us.
At a time when almost everyone is busy coping with the economic consequences of the Covid-19 pandemic, it's safe to say that purse strings are tight. Not many people have spare cash at the end of the month, which unfortunately means that charities are suffering.
Acknowledging this, we’ve partnered with a few worthy charities to help you fund their cause, without feeling out of pocket. When you sell your books, CDs, DVDs or games to webuybooks, we’ll give you the option to donate their value to charity at checkout. Then, the charity you choose will receive a monetary donation in exchange for your clutter!
One of our partnerships is with Bury Hospice, a charity that provides invaluable end-of-life care and support to patients and their families in the Bury area.
Bury Hospice opened its doors in 1991. Since then they’ve continued to provide invaluable palliative and end-of-life care to thousands of local residents and their families across Bury and the wider area.
Their services include a specialist 24-hour inpatient unit, medical and respite facilities, complementary therapy, family bereavement support, a weekly Christie blood and SACT clinic as well as a dedicated community outreach team who serves the needs of patients and their families in their own homes.
As a charity, their services are free of charge, but running the Hospice will cost them £3.5m this year! While they receive a good chunk of this from grants, trusts and fundraising events, they rely massively on donations.
Donating your unwanted items directly to Bury Hospice is a great way to help their cause. However, turning these donations into usable funds requires a lot of resources. They have to employ staff to sort through the piles of donated stuff, then price and sell them on in their shops just to produce money that they can then put towards their cause. Paying for all of this will only cut into their profits.
That’s why using webuybooks is a much better solution all around. Not only is the selling process simple for you, but it enables Bury Hospice to receive a monetary donation that they can use straight away!
No matter how small your donation every penny really does make a difference! Just £10 could pay for a meal, £25 could pay for a bereavement session or £100 would help fund an outreach nurse for a day.
Imagine being able to help this much, just by shifting your unwanted clutter lying around the house!
When you use our charity donation feature, the process of selling your books to us will remain the same as usual, but instead of entering your own payment details at checkout, you’ll choose to donate to charity. Simply choose a charity like Bury Hospice from the dropdown list and we’ll send your money straight to them!
On average, our customers make around £30 by selling their unwanted stuff to webuybooks. Plus, when you sell over £25 worth of items, we automatically increase the amount we pay out by 5%! So, that’s an average of £31.50 that you could donate, helping out a charity like Bury Hospice and providing care to all those that need it. The more items you have to sell to us, the more money you will be able to raise for Bury Hospice. So, rummage around in your cluttered drawers, pull down those boxes of books from the attic and see what you can pull together to help a wonderful cause!
