Recycle your unwanted clothes

We’ve been working with Clothes Aid, a leading clothes recycling firm, since 2007. Over this time, clothes that you've donated have helped to raise over £1 million to help grant magical wishes to enhance the lives of children fighting life-threatening conditions. 

Clothes Aid turns your clothes into cash for charity by selling them in Europe. They can also recycle linens and bric-a-brac.

For more information about Clothes Aid and collection dates in your area, visit clothesaid.co.uk. You can also call Clothes Aid for more information on 0207 288 8545.
