While I was shopping today I bought a couple of things I thought were 2 for £1 only to discover they’d been reduced and it was now BOGOF. I already had a £1 coin in my hand, so it was easy to pop the change straight in to the collection box on the counter.
My change went to support St. Michael’s Hospice (North Hampshire) http://www.stmichaelshospice.org.uk/. The hospice enables people faced with a life limiting illness, their families and carers, to attain the highest possible quality of life by providing a choice of specialist care and support.
I also had the opportunity – as I paused to donate – to help out a fellow shopper as they spilled purchases trying to put them on the counter, I helped them to pick things up: a bonus random act of kindness too! 🙂
