Clothing banks takes Wiltshire Air Ambulance fundraising to £55,000

Clothing donations from the kind people of Wiltshire have now raised more than £50,000 for Wiltshire Air Ambulance.

Since partnering with family-run Recycling Solutions in June 2020, a total of 58 clothing banks have been placed across the county.

Dealing solely with charity clothing bank collections, Recycling Solutions ensure a long-term sustainable revenue stream for their charity partners.

Their banks have been constantly filled with clothing, shoes, bags, belts and hats. The items are then recycled and our charity receives £210 for every tonne of clothing collected.

Wiltshire Air Ambulance fundraising manager Des Regan said: “We’ve been delighted with how our partnership with Recycling Solutions has been going.

“Recycling Solutions are experts in their field; ultimately the clothing banks help reduce the amount of textile waste going to landfill and the money raised helps to fund our lifesaving work across Wiltshire, Bath and surrounding areas.”

We are still looking for more sites to install clothing banks, so if you have a suggestion, please email waa@recyclingsolutions.org.uk.
