LUSH Charity Pot event

Lush Derby, who have so often been amazingly generous to DRS, have invited us to hold another "Charity Pot Event" at their store!

We need a team of volunteers to run a stall at the shop throughout the three day event, to hand out leaflets, chat to customers and smile a lot! Hope you can join us!!

If you can spare an hour or two on 26th April (9 - 8pm), 27th April (9 - 7pm) or 28th April (10 - 4.30) please let us know!

This how Lush themselves describe a Charity Pot Event....."We love our shops to mirror our company ethics by supporting the small grassroots groups in their community, working in the areas our Charity Pot sales support. As such, every store can host grassroots groups for 1-2 days (typically a weekend) in their store. Giving our customers chance to find out about local groups and the work they are doing, and our store the opportunity to donate their Charity Pot sales (excl tax) made over the days of the event to support the group. Normally the shop will help set up a promotional area for the group. This could include your group’s banners, posters, leaflets and any other items that would help communicate your message to the public. Some of our customers may be interested in volunteering or in giving their support personal."

Festival Salvage

Details to follow but time to start getting these dates on your calendar please!

17th - 18th June Download

29th July YNOT

26th August Leeds

Salvaging tents, sleeping bags, camping mattresses etc left behind at festivals is a no brainer! A day or two's hard work results in vital supplies for refugees AND is kinder to the environment because it reduces landfill!
Please help!

International Women's Day

DRS has a stall at this exciting event. More details from the main organisers…

“This is an annual event organised by a non-profit group of volunteers - by the community, for the community; the event brings together local public services, charities, support groups, national campaigns, women's enterprise and inspiring role models to celebrate, inspire, reach out, raise awareness and make a difference.

Stallholders say that they benefit from being part of the IWD festival by raising awareness, networking with other organisations, engaging the public, fundraising, recruiting staff or volunteers or growing membership and being associated with a positive event, showing a commitment to gender equality.”
