Wiltshire Air Ambulance has teamed up with Recycling Solutions to install charity clothing banks across the county.
Family-run Recycling Solutions have been operating since 2009 and are one of the leading textile recycling companies in the UK. Dealing solely with charity clothing bank collections, Recycling Solutions ensure a long-term sustainable revenue stream for their charity partners.
If you have been clearing out your cupboards and wardrobes during lockdown why not take unwanted clothing and footwear to one of the Air Ambulance clothing banks. There are several nearby – at Burbage Village Hall, Wootton Rivers Village Hall, Woodbridge Inn, near Pewsey, Morrisons in Devizes and Asda in Thamesdown Drive, Swindon.
Wiltshire Air Ambulance fundraising manager Des Regan said: “We’re delighted to be working with Recycling Solutions, who are experts in this field.
Ultimately the clothing banks will help reduce the amount of textile waste going to landfill and the money raised will help to fund our lifesaving work.”
Wiltshire Air Ambulance needs to raise £3.75 million each year to continue flying and saving lives. In 2019 the charity was tasked to 1,233 incidents across Wiltshire and surrounding areas.
Wendy Yarney from Recycling Solutions said: “Wiltshire Air Ambulance is a very well supported charity and we look forward to working with the local community, both in finding homes for our clothing banks and ensuring they are well used.”
