Welcome to our new blog. We are going to give you an insight into what happens behind the scenes at a charity shop. It isn't all just putting clothes on racks!
I am Gill Perkins, the CEO of Wandsworth Oasis – a charity which helps people affected byHIV. Last year the charity donated over £130,000 to various projects – mainly in London - to support vulnerable people living with the virus as well as to prevention and awareness raising projects. Our two primary objectives of raising money to support people living with HIV in the borough and assisting the HIV prevention agenda, are vitally important, but so too is our commitment to minimising our environmental impact. We pride ourselves on sending as little as possible to landfill. I will tell you more about that in my next blog.
