news > 27/01/2017 - Taking stock

Volunteer

Happy New Year, although I'm sure by now the festive season seems like a dim and distant memory.

We've been taking stock here at Giving World, reflecting on what we have achieved over the last year and what we want to achieve during 2017.

With your help we have saved 1,381 tonnes of goods from landfill, that's the equivalent of the CO2e emissions from 759 million plastic bags!

And we've distributed these brand new, unopened surplus goods to over 251,000 people living in poverty in the UK. Thank you.

We have also opened our doors to 187 volunteers, referred through local care agencies in Leicester, providing therapeutic and meaningful opportunities for the most vulnerable in our communities. They help us repurpose the goods for distribution. Our volunteers forge friendships, get on buses and help others (rather than being helped), all for the very first time. Developing essential life and work skills to benefit themselves and their communities. It's been incredible and humbling in equal measure. You can watch our volunteers here.

We want to do much more of everything this year.
