Frequently Asked Questions

We collect all types of clothing, pairs of shoes, handbags and accessories that are in a donatable condition.

A Donatable condition means that the clothes, shoes, bags, accessories and everything else you want to donate are in good condition and can be worn or used by someone else; for example, clean clothes and free of any strong odours, such as smoke or mildew, does not have any rips, tears, or stains that would make them unwearable. Small holes or stains may be acceptable.

When you donate clean clothes, you show respect for the recipient, who may be in need of clothing and may not have the resources to wash them themselves.

Remember that charities often have limited resources and volunteers, and donating clean clothes reduces the amount of time they need to spend sorting and processing donations.

There are no limits to the amount of bags you can donate. However, if you are going to have more than 10 bags, please state this clearly on the booking form so that we know what size of vehicle to put on the collection route.

Many people lack access to clean, functional clothing, and your donations can help bridge this gap. Donating more bags ensures that more individuals have the clothing they need to stay warm, protected, and presentable.

Charities that provide clothing assistance often rely on donations to support their operations. Donating more bags helps them meet the needs of those they support and continue providing essential services.

In addition to the above, donating more bags of clothes can also bring a sense of satisfaction and fulfilment. Knowing that you are helping others and making a positive impact can be a truly rewarding experience.

All our staff carry an ID card, and you are advised to ask to see this before handing over the donations to the collection team.
