Air Ambulance support ‘takes off’ at Glenvale Park in Wellingborough

Glenvale Park have announced the installation of a clothing donation bank to raise much needed funds for the Warwickshire & Northamptonshire Air Ambulance (WNAA).

The donations will go towards supporting the local air ambulance charity to raise crucial funds, whilst also providing a sustainable way to recycle clothing, close to residents’ homes.

The donation bank has already proved popular, with generous amounts of clothing contributed by locals in recent weeks.

The partnership follows Glenvale Park’s recent support for the Redwell Wellingborough Walking Football Club and the Wellingborough Foodbank, and forms part of the £1.1bn of asset value the development is forecasted to deliver for community amenities.

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

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 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 exact location can be found using What Three Words:
