Textile banks

Don't throw away the textiles you don't need, help to reduce the £140m worth of textiles sent for disposal each year in the UK by placing them in a bring banks and we'll pass them onto someone in need.    

Our banks also accept used rags, tea towels, bedding and curtains, even items with holes, tears or stains as these can be shredded and used as stuffing/padding.
