Swan Walk’s 2019 Cancer Research UK Donation Station, which ran in the centre between 2 and 19 May, collected an incredible 1,267 bags of donated clothes, homewares and books from customers who collected a bag from the Donation Station on the mosaic and returned it when they were next shopping in Horsham. The total stock value to Cancer Research UK is £39,277 and donations will be sold in the charity’s Horsham store.
Gill Buchanan, Centre Manager, said: “This is the 11th year that Swan Walk has run this community event and more than £219,000 has now been raised overall, an incredible number. Roll on 2020, when the total could top a quarter of a million pounds.
“The event would not be the success that it is without the support of Victoria Godfrey and her team from Cancer Research UK’s East Street store and of course our loyal and supportive customers.”
