ParcelHero’s #Mumblesale eBay jumble sale has raised over £500 for Great Ormond Street children’s hospital – thanks to the generosity of mums, retailers and manufacturers across the UK.
Mums (and dads!) from all over Britain took part in #Mumblesale – a giant online jumble sale – and helped raise over £500 for Great Ormond Street Hospital (G.O.S.H.): the world-famous children’s’ paediatric hospital and research centre based in London.
#Mumblesale’s organizer, the international courier ParcelHero, was overwhelmed by the generosity of both parents and the many companies producing children’s products who donated items.
Says ParcelHero’s Head of Consumer Research, David Jinks: ‘We’d like to say a huge Thank-you to everyone who helped with the success of #Mumblesale. ParcelHero is proud to be an official Corporate Partner of Great Ormond Street Hospital, and all the money raised will go straight to G.O.S.H’s exciting projects: such as Phase 2 of its rebuild programme and vital research into children’s’ diseases.’
Adds David: ‘#Mumblesale received many stunning items for auction from both companies and well known bloggers. Particular thanks go to Amaia Kid, The Book People, Bugaboo, GAP Kids, Honest Mum, Igloo kids, Loud Apparel, Mattel, Playmobil, VTech and Wee Ride UK. And to those many parents who successfully bid to buy all the wonderful children’s toys and clothes.’
Vicki, well-known writer of the popular blog Honest Mum, was one of the first people to donate new and nearly-new items to the raffle. She explains: ‘The work Great Ormond Street do to treat and support children, and their families, is invaluable and it was wonderful to be part of the fundraising’; while Serena from Loud Apparel adds: ‘It has been such a good experience to contribute to the campaign.’
