Furthermore, we offer a hassle-free and convenient option for individuals who wish to donate clothes, which is of great importance to our charity partners.

About Us

What they say about us!

Many clients throughout the UK have supported us. Check out some of the feedback they've given us.

Kate J.
Hull, East Riding of Yorkshire

Very polite gentlemen came to collect the clothes. I chose the Funzi Bodo charity and hope that my donation makes a difference in this world.

Harry K.
Harrogate, North Yorkshire.

Very easy to arrange a date for collection. I was given a rough time window in which a driver came and collected the clothes. Was very easy and quick will definitely use this service again.

Ellie S.
Darlington, County Durham

Very happy with the collection! Due to the large donation we wanted to give we were not comfortable leaving the collection out the same day/time as our recycling. Upon calling Bag2Charity, they arranged a pick up time suitable to me.

Jason L.
Leeds, West Yorkshire

Very happy thank you! Didn’t actually see the pick up driver but I put the bags out Friday night and they was gone by Saturday late afternoon so very impressed with how quick they came to collect. Will definitely call you guys in the future for collections.

Olivia A.
Ripon, North Yorkshire

I had quite a few bags for collection, service was friendly and as arranged. Will definitely be using them again to donate to a charity.
