Donate your unwanted clothes to the NSPCC with Clothes Aid
Clothes Aid and the NSPCC want to liberate your unloved clothes and give them a new life. Impulse buys, unwanted gifts, wrong size, wrong colour? Clearing out your wardrobe is now a simple and effective way to support the NSPCC.
We are looking for any clothes, shoes and accessories that are still in a really good, wearable condition. They don't need to be designer brands, high-street fashion is fine. Remember, the better the quality, the more money raised for the NSPCC.
Become a Charity Champion
You get involved in this new scheme by joining up as a 'Clothes Aid Charity Champion.' As a Charity Champion, all we ask is that you collect just a few good quality items of clothing from your friends, family and colleagues a few times a year. You could do this at a coffee morning, a parent and toddler group, or even at your office.
Here's how it works
- Sign up to become a Clothes Aid charity champion by visiting the Clothes Aid website.
- Clothes Aid will send you a toolkit with guidelines, leaflets and posters to help you with your collection.
- When you have at least three bags, let Clothes Aid know and they will come and collect them from you.
- Your clothes will be sent for reuse - diverting clothes from landfill (or gathering dust in the wardrobe) and reducing greenhouse gases.
- The NSPCC will receive a minimum of £300 per tonne of items collected to help support vulnerable children and young people.
The scheme is currently operating in Greater London, Suffolk, Norfolk, Cambridgeshire, Essex, Bedfordshire, Hertfordshire and Northamptonshire - so if you live and work in one of these areas then we would love to hear from you. If not why not sign up and we'll let you know when the scheme has expanded to your area?
