Donating Clothes
Made Simple

The hassle-free way to give pre-loved clothes and raise funds for the charity of your choice

Donate Clothes Turns 1 – Happy Birthday To Us!

It’s been 12 months since we launched our clothes collection service – and what a year it’s been.

To celebrate turning 1, we’re bringing together some highlights of the past 12 months and looking to the year ahead, as we continue to expand into new areas and onboard new partner charities.

Donate Clothes one year anniversary

Most importantly, we wanted to say a huge THANK YOU to all of you.

It’s been an incredible year and we couldn’t have done it without you. Your support is hugely appreciated by the Donate Clothes team and our wonderful partner charities.

The stats: We’ve collected over 180 tonnes of your preloved clothes

First things first. We’re incredibly proud to announce that – since 1 October 2021 – we’ve collected over 180 tonnes of preloved items from your doorsteps. By donating these items, not only are you raising funds for a British charity of your choice. You’re also:

Our charities: Boot Out Breast Cancer, Troop Aid and Shout

We couldn’t look back at our first year without mentioning our incredible partner charities who are so grateful for your support.

We’re also delighted to announce that we have a new partner charity. Shout is the UK’s first free and confidential 24/7 text messaging mental health support service – and from 1 October 2022 you can choose to support them when you donate your preloved items.

Check out this blog to find out more about Shout and discover how an email from Edie, a Donate Clothes customer, spearheaded our partnership with them.
