Charities@SAMS acts as the conduit for surplus stock from businesses who want to donate to Voluntary, Community & Social Enterprise organisations. In addition to adhoc donations throughout the year, Charities@SAMS also coordinates two annual Appeals; Christmas Wishes and the Easter Challenge. Both appeals are a positive way in which employers and individuals can contribute to their local community. All donations are distributed to the most disadvantaged children, teens and families in Lancashire.

SAMS



sams


An Aladdin’s cave of creative goodies SAMS collect, display and offer back to the whole community a huge assortment of recycled goods. With the help of donations from public and private organisations, SAMS places the spotlight firmly on reuse, actively encouraging environmental awareness within the local business community.

From fabrics and ribbon to cardboard cones and zips, SAMS has it all under one roof, creating a unique environment for the community to engage in. Donating companies reduce their carbon footprint, develop corporate social responsibility and minimise disposal costs so improving profit. SAMS has created a network of companies and members across the region and works tirelessly, creating partnerships with other recycling projects across the whole country.

FRIENDS FOR LIFE
 

Friends For Life (FFL) Sept 13 - August 16

The project, funded by the BIG Lottery, was delivered at Energyzone and hosted a variety of classes including; Dance with Mary, Yoga, Zumba, Tai Chi, Art and crafts, Knit and Natter and Writing for Pleasure. A dedicated Sewing and Craft room with Sewing machines, over lockers was available for Friends to use independently.

Do I need to be a "member" to come and buy from Sams ? Or can I just turn up and stock up for projects in my community classes?
