'Hello, my name is Great Uncle Bulgaria. As head of the Burrow, it is my pleasure to let you know that my fellow Wombles and I will be joining ϲֱ쿪 in 2023 on your journey to ask the nation to be more sustainable.

2023 is a perfect time to inspire everyone to do more for the environment, from recycling to reusing and refurbishing old items rather than sending them to landfill and we feel that ϲֱ쿪 are the perfect partner to help us along the way.'

The Wombles are well known for their love of nature, recycling, and the importance of community; therefore, they are the perfect team to help us be as sustainable as possible.

ϲֱ쿪 shops raise funds to support vital services for older people, including the Charity’s free and confidential national Advice Line and Telephone Friendship Services. By shopping and donating to ϲֱ쿪, you’re helping to reduce waste that ends up in landfill and helping us raise money to support older people.
