Following a successful pilot in Oxfordshire and Buckinghamshire last year, A Good Thing is now thrilled to be rolling its charitable service out across the UK. It has built an online matchmaking platform that links charities up with local businesses who have things to donate. Think Freecycle, but for charities and businesses. So far laptops, monitors, stationery, furniture, surplus stock and spare promotional merchandise have all been donated through A Good Thing, to the delight of brilliant local charities.

The not-for-profit is growing fast and keen to get as many charities and businesses across the UK signed up as they can: are you a charity in need of items in order to deliver your services better and more efficiently? Are you a business that has leftover things you’d like to find a new home for? Are you trying to avoid things going into landfill? If so, A Good Thing is for you!
