Welcome to our Community News

Hello from In Kind Direct HQ!

Time has indeed flown but we are proud to announce that In Kind Direct is celebrating its 20th anniversary this year. To launch the festivities, we started the year with our first ever TV and radio appearances, followed quickly by the launch of our annual Impact Survey and now we’re in full swing organising events to celebrate our anniversary year. We can’t believe it’s been 20 years since In Kind Direct first opened its doors. From 6 products and 3 donors to now over 50,000 products and 1,000 donors, we really have come a long way and we wouldn’t have been able to do it without your help and support.

Below we reflect on the first 5 months of the year and announce the events, online competitions and social media activity you can get involved with this year.

That’s it for now, but we look forward to visiting and talking to you all in the upcoming quarter!

It's our 20th anniversary this year and we want to shout it from the rooftops. Please spread the word and share your stories to encourage more companies to give their surplus.

If you could do with a few tips on how to take the perfect photo for social media, donor reports and your website, then we've pulled together a simple guide to help you on your way.
