Clothing recycling program for NSPCC

Jun '12
BHS stores in London and the South are inviting the public to clear out their wardrobes and raise funds for the NSPCC by giving unwanted clothes via Clothes Aid collections. In return, BHS will be giving shoppers a £5 voucher to spend in-store.

The scheme will run from now until 23 June 2012, and to get involved in the promotion members of the public will need to fill a large bag with their unwanted clothes, shoes (tied together) and bags. When the bag is ready, householders simply call Clothes Aid’s helpline on 08450 722 780 to arrange a collection.

BHS are delighted to be supporting the NSPCC through our new recycling promotion in London and the South.

Emma Taylor, NSPCC corporate fundraising manager, said: “Having a clothes clear out is a great way for people to support the NSPCC during this challenging economic climate. The charity relies on the generosity of the general public for more than 82 per cent of the income it needs to raise each year. All the money raised through the promotion will help the NSPCC to end cruelty to children.”

Since 2006 BHS has raised over £1million for the NSPCC and have committed to continue to raise money and make a difference through 2012/2013.

Money raised by BHS will make a huge difference to the lives of children and young people in London and the South and across the UK. It 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 innovative and pioneering services for children who have suffered abuse and harm.

The NSPCC will receive £300 for every tonne of clothing collected, the equivalent of around 200 bags. BHS vouchers can be redeemed until 23 July.
