Money for old clothes

PRESS RELEASE October 2013 Clothes For Charity PIC

Local family bereavement charity joins up with Clothes for Charity

Family bereavement charity Jigsaw (South East) has joined Clothes for Charity – an organisation that makes it simpler and for friends and family to donate unwanted clothes to help us fund our support for grieving families or those facing the loss of a loved one through serious illness.

At www.clothesforcharity.org.uk, you can choose to donate to us direct or request a secure and trackable donation bag, which will be collected by Clothes for Charity from wherever’s convenient for you. They’ll even send you an email telling you it got there safely.

Best of all, while most charity clothing collection schemes will only hand over £70 per tonne to the charity, Clothes for Charity will give Jigsaw £200 per tonne, enabling it do even more great work thanks to your donation.

Step-by-step guide

  1. Visit www.clothesforcharity.org.uk and register
  2. Select Jigsaw (South East) and request a bag for your unwanted clothes
  3. Your bag will arrive complete with a Jigsaw logo and barcode
  4. Once filled, log back in to www.clothesforcharity.org.uk to arrange collection
  5. Sit down and have a well earned cuppa

Janey Treharne, Business and Development Manager for Jigsaw (South East) said:

“As a small local charity, we are constantly seeking new and creative ways to fund our work with grief-stricken children and young people, and those facing the death of a loved one through serious illness.

This simple, secure way of donating clothes will certainly help – the more clothes donated, the more great work we can do.”

  1. I have tried to log on to the link you have stated http://www.clothesforcharity.org.uk but it appears that there is something wrong with that page.
    I have many cloths (some new) after losing weight that no longer fit me.
    I would like a bag please.

    1. Hi Kevin,

      Thanks for flagging this up – it doesn’t seem to be in existence anymore. I will remove all mentions of it. Good luck finding a place for your clothes!

      Best wishes,
      Natalie
