Recycle clothes, raise funds, reward yourself!
To mark the launch of the new Autumn collections and BHS's Back to School campaign, the retailer is inviting families across the UK to clear out their clothes to support the NSPCC.
For every bag of clothes donated via the NSPCC's official partner Clothes Aid, BHS will give shoppers a £5 voucher to spend in-store*. The NSPCC will receive £300 for every tonne of clothing collected, the equivalent of around 200 bags.
To take part, members of the public should fill a large bag with their unwanted clothes, shoes, belts and bags, and call Clothes Aid's helpline on 08450 722 780 to arrange a convenient collection time. A £5 BHS shopping voucher will be given for each full bag of clothing collected.
The money raised by the new scheme will help to make a massive difference to the lives of children and young people across the UK. It could pay for more ChildLine counsellors to answer contacts from children by phone and online; help the NSPCC answer more calls from adults with concerns about a child; and enable the charity to develop its pioneering services for children who have suffered abuse and harm.
Since 2006, BHS has raised over £1 million for the NSPCC and has committed to continue to raise more money through 2012/2013.
The scheme will run until 30 September 2012 and BHS vouchers can be redeemed until 31 October 2012.
