Clothing Bank in Sheffield


Recommended Posts

After having yet another clearout of my wardrobe I now have loads of clothes to get shut of are there any charity clothing banks that actually just donate them directly to such as the homeless in Sheffield? I am loath to put them in the charity collection bins anymore as they get robbed on a nightly basis and the same happens when you leave them outside in the charity bags I would rather they went to someone who might actually need them.

im afraid i dont know the answer to your question.

 

however, if you want a charity that will get more bang from the bucks that your donations will raise, please think about donating it to the children's society.

 

they have a shop in hillsborough where i take all my donations. the simple reason i go there is because they are signed up to gift aid, and every item i donate is eligible for a gift aid donation in addition to its sale value.

 

i get an annual letter telling me how much my donations have raised and asking if i still wish to offer the gift aid donation on those sales (it would seem a little non-sensical to ask for it back! :o)

 

so far in the last 12 months, ive raised nearly £70 for them in my donations...and thats before the gift aid percentage!

 

if other charities offered it, i would donate to more, but for ingenuity and sensibility, these guys get all my cast-offs, unwanted gifts and books :)

EDIT: You could try contacting the archer project at the cathedral on campo lane, they work directly with homeless in relation to drugs and alcohol issues and may welcome your donation
