Embedded content from other websites

Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.

We specialise in collecting unwanted clothing and other items, and the funds generated from these donations are given to our partnered charities. As a business, we simply would not exist if it wasn’t for the kindness and generosity of the supporters that leave bags outside or get in touch with us to organise bigger collections. Without them, we wouldn’t be able to do what we do best.
