Culver House Packing
« on: January 29, 2011, 09:40:32 AM »
Thought I'd throw this in the mix to see what response there would be and what everyone thinks.
I've noticed at Tescos Culverhouse Cross Cardiff a lot of charities/organisations at checkouts packing peoples goods and collectin donations for their help, I'm happy to organise this but it would mean quite a few vols to make it worthwhile... maybe it's something we could do at other venues  as well :shrug:??????

It's come up a few times before hasn't it, but nothing's actually come of it yet.  I can't remember why that was  :-\

I think it's a fab idea  :clap:

Probably the reason it didn't get off the ground before is because someone needs to drive it forward and rope in the necessary number of volunteers?

 ;D think this would be a great idea and sure we could get the volunteers. So if you both could get it up and running it would be brill.

Also cause we didn't get permission. Penny contacted some last year without success. Maybe like PAH where you need to contact on individual basis. Plus as Jo said numbers needed. But lets all be like a dog with a bone and keep knorring away - something has to give  :clap:

This is a great idea...I have tried several times locally to arrange it, as charities regularly raise thousands on a busy day....  The problem I have run into is that most of the supermarkets are often booked up, sometimes for a year in advance & 'events' are limited by the supermarkets to avoid 'donation fatigue'

Problem was we were doing it with vols such as cubs but had to have crb checks

Trudes if you're contacting asda is it possible you can hold off a little while as I'm dealing with them over M&Gs (you only need 2-4 vols for those for a good return) as its the events co-ordinator that deal with this sort of thing - ta

I am already in contact with Marie Jones re: auction at Asda Pontprennau but wont ask re: bag packing until you have sorted M&Gs  :)

I  tried to get a Meet & Greet with Tesco around two years ago. You are allowed two storesa year. I kept getting letters to say that we had not been sucessful but would be considered in the next sector.  Dont know if it is worth contacting them again?Last letter i had was back in June 2009.

I did a back pack at Sainsburys Pontllanfriath with the football team (for their funds) and was had a really good total - its only a small store - but doesnt tend to be as heavily booked in advance as tesco and asda.
