Recycling clothes for cash

Items requestedOur fundraising appeal for old clothes is back!

Items need to be with us by Saturday 28 September. We can only take re-saleable items – see chart opposite. Please tidy out your wardrobes and get your families and friends to join in too.

Our last appeal in January led to 274kg in old clothes being donated. It helped us to raise £174.

Thanks in advance.
