DPD & Asos partner in scheme to help customers donate unwanted clothing to charity

first_imgThe service is available through the Your DPD app, which currently has some 9 million users, and allows Asos customers expecting a delivery to arrange for DPD to pick up their clothing donation when they drop off the order. Customers book the pick up through the app, and either choose which of the five charities they want to donate their clothing to, or let the app decide. Donations can also be Gift Aided.

DPD & Asos partner in scheme to help customers donate unwanted clothing to charity “ReLove is another way for us to help cut emissions, reduce waste and raise money for charities at the same time. It’s also great to team up with ASOS on another smart solution for their customers.” Asos and DPD are partnering on a circular economy initiative to help customers donate their unwanted clothes to charity. In its first phase, ReLove is only available for ASOS customers expecting a DPD delivery, although during April UK DPD staff are also being encouraged to use it to help kickstart the scheme. Patrik Silén, the Chief Strategy Officer for ASOS also comments:center_img “We know that our customers are very active in donating their pre-loved clothing and that they see it as a great way of keeping products in use and out of landfill, so partnering with DPD on the ReLove initiative is a natural fit for us.” AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis About Melanie May Melanie May is a journalist and copywriter specialising in writing both for and about the charity and marketing services sectors since 2001.

AshGold captain Lawrence Lartey hails ‘amazing’ Bash Hayford

first_imgAshantigold captain Lawrence Lartey has hailed Bashiru Hayford as ‘fantastic’ for getting the best out of the squad this season.The former Kotoko and Medeama boss is on the verge of annexing the league for Miners, which will be their first top flight trophy in about 19 years.It’s Hayford’s second season in charge of Ashantigold and with two games to end the season, Lartey has acknowledged the need to improve on last season’s fourth-place finish. “We have been at our best right from the start of the season till now and with two matches to end the season we need to improve upon the performances to finish hard because the competition from those behind us is still tough but we’re taking away the positives that has kept us on top of the league log till now and get better. We have only two games ahead of us,” the Black Meteors captain told Adom FM.”There’s a good feeling in the squad. Coach Bash is an amazing and fantastic coach. Very competitive. He talks to us a lot and shows us where we have to improve. He’s on top of it all to make us better.”“If you look at our team, you can see we have a lot of young players but he has been able to blend us all for us to get where we have gotten to, it tells you he is a fantastic coach,” he added. “Our squad has the perfect mix, we have experience and fresh legs,” he added. “We need both if we want to be champions, and the players who are not involved give everything when they get their opportunity. That’s the mentality we need.Lartey, who led second-tier Nania FC to win their first ever FA Cup trophy in 2011, is eager to improve his personal form.”I’m always trying to get better. I’m at the one of the best clubs in Ghana and that helps a lot to keep giving my best for the fans.”–Follow Joy Sports on Twitter: @Joy997FM. Our hashtag is #JoySportslast_img read more
