It has recently donated five containers full of brand new, kitchen and bathroom furniture and accessories to local charity, Stella’s Voice. Each container holds thousands of pounds worth of new and boxed bathroom and kitchenware. The proceeds secured will be given to vulnerable families in Ukraine.

Stella’s Voice works in Moldova to protect vulnerable children and young people from human traffickers. The mind behind the charitable initiative came from Mike Wiseman who recently joined the team at Hutchesons of Portsoy.

During one of their regular team meetings, the matter was raised on what should be done with all the boxed furniture. In his new position as store person, Mike talked about Stella’s Voice and all the work they do protecting young people from human trafficking and suggested donating everything to the Peterhead based charity.

The charity also works with several supermarkets by collecting items that have been damaged or are near their use by date. These items are then donated locally helping some of those in most need in the local community.

European Director for Stella’s Voice, Mark Morgan adds, “we are most grateful to Hutchesons of Portsoy for this great donation which has come at a time when people are in great need, having fled Ukraine for their lives.”

Managing director of Hutchesons of Portsoy, Neil Hutcheson said: “all the team were immediately on board with Mike’s fantastic idea. We immediately reached out to Stella’s Voice to see if they wanted to visit us and have a closer look at all the old (but new!) stock in our warehouse. I think that the staff from Stella’s Voice were pleasantly surprised when they realised that everything was brand new and still in boxes!”
