Bishop's Move York are proud to support the Martin House Hospice, as well as Cancer Research UK. Martin House Hospice is a Yorkshire based charity that cares for children and young people with progressive life-limiting illnesses. It also provides vital support to their families.
Our Yorkshire branch uses Bishop's Move's 'Declutter and Donate' scheme to collect unwanted items that their customers discover when moving house and donate them direct to charity. Martin House Hospice can then sell these donations direct in their charity shops and raise money to help support their care programme.
How can you donate to Martin House Hospice?
As soon as you know you are moving house, you should arrange for a free moving survey from our removals and storage branch in Yorkshire. Our professional surveyor will then visit you and your home at your convenience to discuss your move. At this stage they can give you some donation sacks in which to put any items that you no longer need and wish to donate to charity. On the day of your move, your removal team will put these bags safely to one side whilst they pack and wrap the rest of your possessions up - they even have some spare donation sacks on board should you need any more. The crew will then bring the donated items back to the branch once they have left you settling in happily to your new home. We then arrange for these donations to get to Martin House Hospice's charity shops so that they can be sold and raise much needed funds for this charity - and it's as simply as that!
Martin House first opened it's doors in 1987 and was the second children's hospice in the UK. Since then, Martin House Hospice have played a leading role in the delivery of children's hospice care. They provide free support and care for families within the Yorkshire region with a children with a life-limiting condition. For many it's services are vital.
