In Kind Direct visits Ripples' office


The past week has been very busy in the Ripples office!

Last Monday we had a visit from one of our partners, In Kind Direct, who were here to meet with our CEO Anne Phillips and take a look around the office and warehouse. Our office was momentarily transformed into a television studio, as the crew set up the room for interviews with Anne and our guests from In Kind Direct! They were filming their visit so the footage could be included in a video showcasing the services that In Kind Direct provides for charities across the UK.
In Kind Direct takes products from warehouses that are left-over stock or no longer needed by companies, and redistributes them to charities and organisations that have greater need of them.
The donations that we receive from them are sent straight to Africa where they are most needed. Most recently, In Kind Direct donated 1000 hockey sticks that we shipped over for use at several schools in Nigeria. These donations are invaluable to charities as it means that money which would otherwise have to have been spent on funding the donations, can now be redirected back into our other programs such as Medical MOT’s and women’s enterprise. In Kind Direct are a great help to Ripples, as their ongoing support means we can continue our charity work without huge financial constraints.
We simply cannot afford to carry on with our great work without support and donations from people and companies just like In Kind Direct. From whole organisations sponsoring a village, to just a single person wanting to help our cause: every little helps and we are extremely grateful for any donation amounts!
