Doing our vest for UK charities - Clothes Aid 2024

Doing our vest for UK charities

vestWe’re Clothes Aid, one of the UK’s largest clothing collection companies. You may recognise the name or been kind enough to fill one of our charity collection bags. We’ve been part of the fabric of Britain since 1996 recycling your pre loved clothes for great UK charities and to date we have raised over £9 million. And we’ve got some news…

We know our donors like to freshen up and clear out their wardrobes with the seasons and at Clothes Aid we feel exactly the same way. We’re starting 2015 with a new look that reflects the good work we’ve been doing behind the scenes for years. We’re jumper-ing for joy to be able to introduce our new brand to you. We have a shiny new logo with strapline ‘collecting for British charities is in our jeans’, new responsive website with online bookings live from March, rebranded livery and new look charity collection bags, nationwide from April.

Being a social business we are driven by our cause and not by our bottom line. And our cause is to do good things for great UK charities and recycle for the planet. We’re proud to help charities without retail shops financially benefit from the generous donations that we collect. It costs them not a penny, every pound they receive from us is a bonus.

We’re not dressing up for the sake of it. With our new look and clear calls to action we hope to encourage even more donations because our charities have challenging fundraising targets to meet this year. Macmillan Cancer Support are facing the fact that a growing number of people will be diagnosed with cancer, a total of 2.5 million in 2015; NSPCC spent £98 million in 2014 on services and activities that will directly benefit children; this year we are aiming to reach £1 million for Make-A-Wish; and Zoë’s’ Place Baby Hospice in Liverpool are celebrating 20 years of helping families and still almost solely reliant on donations. We’re pulling up our socks so we can support them all in 2015.

So please take a look around our new website to find out more about us and how you can get involved, enter our competition and be in the chance to win £200 shopping vouchers, and please don’t hesitate to contact us if you have a question or are interested in booking a collection for one of our great partner charities.
