Gone For Good

£250,000

 

Gone for Good, a commercial, profit-focused business that encourages re-use and recycling by helping people donate unwanted goods to charity.

There are around 11,000 charity shops in the UK selling second hand goods. Between them they make 7 million collections of goods from people’s homes each year, using a mixture of own vehicles and “white van men” 

There’s around 30 billion pounds of unworn clothing in wardrobes across the UK.  And we spend nearly half a billion pounds a year on self-storage - mainly household items no longer needed.

But the charity collection services is problematic:-

•    Donors struggle to find charities that will collect 
•    And the ones that do collect are not professional. 

Gone for Good set out in 2016 to tackle the problem, by launching the Gone for Good app to connect donors of goods with charities that would collect their items for free. 

On many levels the App has been a huge success:

•    Over 60,000 app downloads
•    Over 20,000 donation offers
•    £1 million raised for good causes.

The app was recognised as being named one of “The Best of 2017” apps by Apple itself.


Building on the success of the App, Gone For Good plan to launch a pan-charity collection service, using their own vehicles, in towns and cities across the UK. 

By servicing multiple charities, they can maximise utilisation of the vehicles in a way charities can’t on their own.

Gone For Good will have a tech platform that will both allow “ DPD -level” service and tracking for donors, and further maximise efficiencies.


The service will be cheaper to charities – at just over £20 -  than they currently pay per collection. 

On-Van tablets and barcode label printers, coupled with “sign-on-glass” Gift Aiding, means much of the cost to charities will be offset by higher Gift Aid income. So, it will be an added incentive for charities, many of whom struggle with managing collections.

Gone For Good have  well-established relationships with Charities. Their partners have nearly 5,000 shops - over 40% of all the charity shops in the UK. Half of these don’t currently have collection capability - so the service is scaleable.

Gone For Good will launch in London where donations via the app are higher. The initial plan is start with up to 20 Vans, with 8 major charities (including Cancer Research UK, Barnardos, Shelter and the YMCA). That small presence alone should generate over £2m of sales annually.

There is scope for up to 500 vans nationally, which would give Gone For Good around a quarter of the market. With each Van forecast to generate c £25k of annual contribution, Profit potential is well over £10 million, off sales of £50m.

The team have many years of experience in logistics, sales and technology. The MD of the Van business is an ex-Army Major, with 20+ years of logistics experience. Gone For Good intend to staff the vans using ex-service men and women.


*********************

Gone For Good are looking to raise £250k to fund the initial work and London roll-out. 

This an opportunity for investors to be involved with something that:-

•    Has the potential to be a household name, 
•    Can potentially raise up to £3m a week for good causes
•    Make a huge positive impact on encouraging re-use and re-cycling
