One Hundred and Eighty Tonnes and Counting……..

Giving World Online has hit a significant target of redirecting 180 tonnes of surplus stock away from landfill and onto benefit people in need.

Thanks to the latest donation of 3000 single bed mattresses we are now past our 100 tonnes milestone and working towards our next Giving World Online big target - 300 tonnes redirected from landfill.

Meanwhile many of the mattresses are being redistributed to hostels and refuges around the country, providing homeless and isolated people with a safe, clean and comfortable place to sleep.

Giving World Online has now seen over £700,000 worth of company donations touch the lives of 175,000 vulnerable people.

Director, Rama said: "This has been a great year for Giving World Online and hitting this milestone is the icing on the cake at this time of year. Thanks to all the companies and organisations that have made this possible; they have all contributed to making a really positive impact on the lives of many of the poorest and most vulnerable members of society."
