Another example of the community ‘Pound Pending’ scheme in practise


A prime example of exactly why the community ‘Pound Pending’ scheme exists is ‘Eva.’

Many of you will recognize her from selling copies of ‘The Big Issue’ outside Marks & Spencer in Blackburn town centre.

As a result of the generosity of those who have donated to the scheme, we were able to provide her with a pram, some gloves and clothing items worth up to £40 in the Rummage Rescuers community shop.

Rummage Rescuers Shop Manager, Bex Wood said: “Eva was absolutely frozen when she came into the shop, a regular customer actually went and purchased her a pair of boots as we unfortunately didn’t have any warmer shoes to provide her with.”

Please continue to donate to the ‘Pound Pending’ scheme so that we can continue to help those who need our support, when they need it.  £1 may not sound much, but it can make all the difference.  You can donate either £1 or above by visiting our website:
