Cloud Service Provider ANS have recently announced their charity partnership with Gone for Good, a revolutionary smartphone app which allows businesses and individuals to donate unsold products and goods to charities.
Following a successful pilot in Greater Manchester, Gone for Good is now rolling out its services across the UK over the next month. It aims to help charities raise vital funds and stop unwanted items ending up in landfill.
The app matches businesses and consumers with participating charities in their postcode, who actively want to receive particular items and will collect them for free.
ANS are no stranger to fundraising and regularly partner with charitable organisations including, Royal Manchester Children’s Hospital, Great Ormond Street and The Factory Youth Zone. Paul Sweeney, CEO of ANS, explains the decision to back the Gone for Good campaign:
“We’re delighted to be supporting this innovative social enterprise. Gone for Good combines personal and professional values close to our heart; cutting edge technology focussed on raising charitable funds.
“Gone for Good is quick and easy to use and its values fit squarely with our own. We know our customers rightly expect businesses like ours to act responsibly by supporting charities and local communities as well as helping to reduce waste. So far ANS has donated an estimate the value of donations at around £1200.”
Gone for Good aims is to re-channel 6% of the saleable clothing and other items which currently end up in landfill, whilst the app also enables consumers to give away their unwanted belongings to charity from the comfort of their own homes.
Managing Director Mark Charnock added: “Gone for Good underpins the already fantastic work that ANS is doing in supporting charities and the local community.
“We have had such a positive response from businesses, the public and charities after piloting Gone for Good in Manchester and are delighted to having the backing of ANS.”
