A department store and a charity have teamed up to reward people for recycling unwanted clothes.
For every bag that Clothes Aid collects as a part of the alliance with BHS, in Friars Square, Aylesbury, the store will give a £5 money off voucher to spend in store.
The donated clothes are turned into donations for the NSPCC.
To take part, people in Aylesbury should fill a large bag with their unwanted clothes, shoes, belts and bags, and call Clothes Aid’s helpline on 08450 722 780 to arrange a convenient collection time.
The money raised could pay for more ChildLine counsellors to answer contacts from children by phone and online; help the NSPCC answer more calls from adults with concerns about a child; and enable the charity to develop its pioneering services for children who have suffered abuse and harm.
NSPCC fundraising account manager, Alison Roberts said: “Clearing out old clothes is a great way for people in Aylesbury to support the NSPCC. The charity relies on the generosity of the general public and the money raised through this fantastic promotion will help the NSPCC to continue to protect vulnerable children.”
Since 2006, BHS has raised more than £1million for the NSPCC and has committed to continue to raise more money through 2013/2014.
Collection can be arranged by contacting Clothes Aid before September 30 and BHS £5 off £25 spent vouchers can be redeemed in selected stores until October 31.
