Clothing Donations & Recycling Recycling Event - Friday 17 January If you’re in the midst of a January clear-out, don’t throw anything out just yet. Hang on to your unwanted clothing, shoes and accessories until next Friday (17 January), because our charity has partnered up with ClothesAid to raise vital funds for our patients. Bring your goods to our Children’s Hospital on the day between 09:00 -15:00 and hand them over to our lovely volunteers at our donation point, just to the left our main entrance. Please ensure your items are of a good quality as they will then be distributed by ClothesAid and the profits will be donated back to our charity. To pick up a donation bag please visit our Fundraising Hub on the Main Corridor, open 09:00 – 17:00. To find out more about our clothing recycling scheme with ClothesAid, please email Miranda Williams, Public Fundraising Manager. We’ve partnered up with ClothesAid, the UK’s largest clothing collection company, who collect donated good quality clothing, accessories, shoes, linen & bric-a-brac on our behalf. We don’t have any charity shops on the high street, so this is a way of donating your old belongings to us from the comfort of your home. Look out for our Birmingham Children’s Hospital Charity bags in your letterbox, fill up the bag inside with your unwanted goods, and leave them out for collection on the specified day – safe in the knowledge that your old possessions will find new homes, whilst helping us to do more for sick kids & their families. And if you can’t support us this time, please be aware that all of our Clothes Aid bags are recyclable, along with other plastic bags at large supermarkets. High quality donated items are exported to retailers throughout Europe (usually around 85% of donations) with the remaining items being recycled, so as well as helping Birmingham Children’s Hospital you are also doing your bit to ensure a greener planet for generations to come. Clothes Aid staff will always wear uniform, hi-vis jackets and display ID. They only operate in licensed areas and are registered with the Fundraising Regulator and Institute of Fundraising. If you have any queries, or wish to arrange a special collection at your workplace or school, please contact us.
