We have partnered with second hand fashion charity TRAID, to offer residents a convenient way to donate clothing using TRAID’s free home collection service.
Clothes donated to TRAID go on to be reused and sold in their charity shops, to reduce the environmental and social impacts of our clothes, raising vital funds for global projects to improve conditions and working practices in the textile industry.
What can you donate?
- Clean, wearable clothes
- Sheets and household linen (excluding duvets and pillows)
You can book a collection for a minimum of 1 large bag or 3 small bags of clothing, but TRAID encourages residents to donate more than the minimum amount, as this helps the charity to deliver a more efficient service.
This service is open to all Newham households, including flats, and allows you to book a collection on a day that suits you.
You can book a free online collection by visiting the link here or by calling 020 8733 2595. A collector in a branded TRAID van will collect the donations from you on the agreed day.
