Lifesaving charity lifted up by Glenvale Park

The Warwickshire & Northamptonshire Air Ambulance (WNAA) has received vital support from the developers behind Glenvale Park in Wellingborough.

Glenvale Park is an exciting new neighbourhood for Wellingborough which offers quality new homes, convenient amenities, and exceptional green spaces, and the team there have recently chosen to support the lifesaving pre-hospital emergency medicine charity, by hosting one of its textile recycling banks on-site – in a bid to help raise the vital funds needed for each mission the service undertakes.

“The new donation bank is part of our ongoing commitment to making a positive impact in Wellingborough,” said Mark Best, Director of Midtown Capital, Managing Partner of Glenvale Park LLP.

“At Glenvale Park, we aspire to leave a lasting legacy that extends beyond the development and its homes, which is why we are delighted to be able to support the local air ambulance whilst encouraging sustainable fashion,” he added.

The hosted recycling bank on Glenvale’s premises will enable residents to drop-off donations of clothing, accessories, and small electrical items, and the donation bank has already proved popular, with generous amounts of clothing contributed by locals in recent weeks.

The charity’s Business Support Manager, Liz Kelly added: “We are incredibly grateful to Glenvale Park for hosting one of our clothing reuse banks on site, this will allow their community to support our charity with their preloved items to ensure they stay in the circular economy for longer.

“This is a great and easy way to work towards sustainability, diverting textiles from landfill, all while helping our charity – which receives no government or NHS funding – to raise the £2,300 needed for each vital mission.”

Residents of Wellingborough are encouraged to support the lifesaving Warwickshire & Northamptonshire Air Ambulance by donating to the bank, situated in the car park by Toad Hall Nursery and the Community Centre at Glenvale Park, on Niort Way, Beaumont Road, Wellingborough.

The charity would be delighted for more community spaces, education establishments and businesses to support its vital service across Northamptonshire by hosting one of the charity’s recycling banks – a great and easy way to work towards sustainability and divert textiles from landfill whilst helping the charity save more lives.
