Giving Support Ltd - our commercial participator carrying out house to house collections of used clothing on Charity's behalf.
I am grateful for the opportunity to share some facts with you over the confusion many people have of the process our fund raising charity follows in the collection of unwanted clothing.
We deliver extremely thin plastic bags to households across the country. These bags are then collected and delivered to sorting plants in Poland & Ukraine.
The clothing being supplied to poor countries as affordable clothing to many grateful families. Monies from the sale of these UK unwanted items are sold & the benefits are donated to major research organisations in this country, helping many thousands of people fighting cancer
If you could imagine the millions of tonnes per month of unwanted clothing collected, was dumped in landfill, the effects of pollution would be catastrophic also the thin plastic bags used for collection are sold for recycling by granulation.
We work alongside charity volunteers providing this valuable service.

Wolfson Childhood Cancer Research Centre at Newcastle University is a facility where clinical and research teams from across the city can come together to advance their understanding of how to treat childhood cancers. It brings together over 90 scientists and clinicians in state-of-the-art facilities, including the NECCR Research Laboratories.
Approximately 1,600 children are diagnosed with cancer each year in the UK and the illness remains one of the main reasons why children die prematurely. Many long-term survivors suffer from chronic health problems related to their original therapy. With one in 700 young adults now a survivor of childhood cancer, debilitating side-effects are a concern.
Work at the Wolfson Childhood Cancer Research Centre will focus on developing less toxic therapies with fewer side-effects, more effective treatment options for youngsters with advanced cancer and those whose illness has returned.
Although £5.5m was raised to build the facility, it is not the end as fundraising continues at pace to raise at least £300,000 each year to support the new life-saving research conducted by the centre.
Combat Cancer charity mission is to contribute £30K annually to the Wolfson Centre’s activities
Your support and contributions will enable us to meet our goals and improve conditions. Your generous donation will fund our mission.
