Occasionally our amazing Clink guests can be a little bit forgetful when packing their bags to go home. Sometimes they leave behind their belongings like t-shirts or shoes. Our House keeping staff will pick these up and keep them in our lost and found box for a few weeks, but eventually the lost and found box becomes a lost and found room due to all of the forgotten items.
Being a worldly hostel, we could have just thrown away all of the forgotten things, but instead, we thought, why don’t we sell them and see if we can get a bit of cash out of these bits and bobs?
Last month our wonderful Travel shop girl, Annalisa, organised a little charity auction in our reception area where our guests could bid on the different items. Overall she raised nearly £1,000 which we donated to Teenage Cancer Trust. Well done everyone!
