Doddle expands charity Click and Collect service

Written by Anthony Strzalek

Doddle and Cancer Research UK have announced the expansion of their Click and Collect partnership, with another 50 of the charity’s shops set to become Doddle locations before Christmas.

The partnership which launched in October 2016 in eight Cancer Research UK shops, enables consumers to collect and return their online shopping in High Street locations. As well as the 50 new locations, a further 200 Cancer Research UK shops will join the initiative by mid-2018.

To date, more than 17,000 online orders have been collected or returned at Cancer Research UK shops, generating thousands of pounds in revenue.

Increased footfall from customers collecting and returning parcels has also driven an increase in donations and purchases in the participating shops. The expansion into new locations is expected to increase the rate the partnership can help fund work into the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of cancer.

Tim Robinson, Doddle CEO, commented: “We’re very proud of our partnership with Cancer Research UK, they’ve been an incredibly engaged and proactive partner developing the service across a wider estate of shops and making it a key part of their retail proposition.

“This really is a partnership in every sense of the word and amongst our own teams there’s a huge sense of accomplishment that we’ve been able to develop a service that makes customers lives easier while also supporting such an important cause as cancer research.”

Simon Ledsham, communities director at Cancer Research UK, added: “Our partnership with Doddle has provided a great opportunity to reach to new demographics of supporters. Since it launched we’ve seen more shoppers, donors and volunteers visiting our shops and supporting our work into the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of cancer.

“We’re excited to expand this initiative across more stores, attracting new shoppers and donors to help us fund our life-saving research.”
