ScS reaches donation milestone to Shelter UK

Furniture and carpet retailer ScS has announced it has reached a milestone by donating in excess of £100,000 to Shelter UK.

Earlier this year, ScS announced its partnership with Shelter and gave £25,000 to support their services.

On top of monetary donations, ScS also donated furniture to Shelter’s own retail stores to support the raising of funds. Latest figures show that £56,000 of funds have been raised through the selling of stock.

ScS colleagues have played a vital role in this, helping to raise over £27,000 as part of its ‘Step up for Shelter’ campaign which saw over 300 of ScS colleagues take part. On top of the £27,000 donation, employees also raised £1,325 through a JustGiving page, all of which will help those impacted by homelessness.

Marie Liston, corporate services director at ScS, said: “It’s wonderful to see our partnership with Shelter flourishing the way we’d hoped.

“The ScS team has been keen to get involved in showing their support for this amazing charity and all the work they do to end the housing emergency. We’re excited to continue supporting Shelter and get the team involved in more fundraising activities later in the year.”
