Kidderminster store collecting clothes for Macmillan
7:30am Saturday 9th March 2013 in News
A KIDDERMINSTER store will be collecting clothes to help raise money for Macmillan Cancer Support.
Employees at Wilkinson have set up a clothes collection point at the Market Street store for customers to donate their unwanted clothes until Tuesday, April 30.
Macmillan Cancer Support is Wilkinson’s regional charity of the year and the collection is part of the Bags of Support project, organised by Clothes Aid.
Any good quality high street clothes, shoes, belts, accessories and household linen can be donated and for every tonne of items collected, at least £300 will be donated to Macmillan.
Stephen Bull, store manager at Wilkinson in Kidderminster, said: “We really hope our loyal customers can help us with this fundraiser, as we believe everyone must have at least one item of clothing they can recycle.
“Whether it’s a coat you don’t wear anymore or something the kids have grown out of, it can all be recycled for Macmillan Cancer Support, rather than ending up in landfill.”
Catriona Munn, account manager at Macmillan Cancer Support, said: “We are very grateful to the Kidderminster store for once again getting behind our charity.
“Any money raised through this Bags of Support activity will go a long way to helping people in our local area to cope with cancer.”
