Message from Giving Support ltd
I am grateful for the opportunity to share some facts with you over the confusion many people have of the process our fund raising charity follows in the collection of unwanted clothing. We deliver extremely thin plastic bags to households across the country. These bags are then collected and delivered to sorting plants in Poland & Ukraine. The clothing being supplied to poor countries as affordable clothing to many grateful families. Monies from the sale of these UK unwanted items are sold & the benefits are donated to two major research organisations in this country, helping many thousands of people fighting breast cancer & other forms of cancer. If you could imagine the millions of tonnes per month of unwanted clothing collected, was dumped in landfill, the effects of pollution would be catastrophic also the thin plastic bags used for collection are sold for recycling by granulation. We work alongside charity volunteers providing this valuable service.
