- How you can help
Your unwanted clothes, bags and shoes can help keep us flying. Just drop them off at our nearest clothing bank to you – it couldn’t be simpler!
Did you know that because we own and operate our own clothing banks, we not only provide employment for many local people, we also get the best value for your clothing by selling it through our shops and beyond.
Look out for one of our clothing bags dropping onto your doormat. Simply fill it up with your unwanted clothes, bags and shoes – we’ll collect it and turn it into cash to fund our vital services.
Some of the items you give will go on sale in our charity boutiques, and others will be sold on our behalf. We raise a fantastic £105 per tonne for everything collected.
Your unwanted mobile phones and office electronics can be securely cleansed and sold on to help raise vital funds.
So if you’re upgrading, please think of us. We can rehome most electronic office equipment. And you don’t need to worry about security as we are accredited to securely wipe your data at no cost.
You can now recycle your old car and raise money for our Charity at the same time!
We’re working alongside Charity Car to offer a car recycling service that donates 100% of the market value of your car to us, at no cost to you.
