Spencer Clarke Group Donate To Afghan Refugee Collection

1 - 2 minutes

After the USA announced that they would withdraw troops from Afghanistan, bringing an end to its 20 year war, thousands of desperate people have been trying to flee the country to escape the Taliban.

Since 13th August, the UK has evacuated more than 8,000 people eligible for the Afghan Relocations and Assistance Policy.

After witnessing the harrowing scenes, particularly at Kabul airport, the Spencer Clarke Group team knew that we had to join the effort in donating essential items such as clothes and toiletries to those arriving in the UK.

Within the Spencer Clarke Group office, a tuck shop of goodies (sweets/crisps/chocolate) is provided by the Managing Director, Mike Shorrock and Shareholder, Michael Spencer; employees can then purchase items from the tuck shop with all the money raised going to charity.

From the tuck shop money raised over the last few months, we purchased hundreds of toiletries to go alongside clothing donations brought in by the team. The toiletries included shampoos, conditioners, shower gels, soaps, sponges, deodorants, baby wipes and hand sanitisers.

Mike Shorrock, Managing Director, said, “It’s really important that we get behind causes like this, as a business and individually. Every member of our team contributed to the collection which was great to see.
