There are many things that you can recycle to raise vital funds for Brandon Trust, such as:


We are working with Bristol Textile Recyclers (BTR) to raise vital funds for Brandon Trust whilst recycling unwanted clothing. A win-win situation.

Clothes drives

Arrange a clothes drive for Brandon Trust at your workplace. Simply pick a date and ask your team to bring in their unwanted clothing, bedding, curtains, paired shoes, handbags and belts.

BTR will collect the textiles on the agreed day, weigh the bags on site and provide you with a receipt so you know exactly how much money you’ve raised.

Textile banks
Textile Recycling

BTR will provide a textile bank on behalf of Brandon Trust free of charge. It will be branded with the charity’s details and emptied regularly. Required maintenance will also be provided.

Textile banks are a fantastic way to raise funds in accessible, outdoor public areas such as car parks. They enable members of the public to donate unwanted textiles 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

This is a trouble-free way of creating an income stream for Brandon Trust, as well as creating a permanent and visible advertisement for the charity. The more banks that are placed the greater the profile, and the greater the income. 

Donation stations

Donation stations can be placed in accessible, indoor areas enabling people who have access to the building to donate their unwanted goods. These stations work especially well within offices and are a great solution where a textile bank may not be suitable.

Similar to the textile banks, BTR will provide the stations on behalf of Brandon Trust, branded with the charity’s details, and will empty the station regularly alongside providing any maintenance.

For all textiles collected, a BACS payment will then be made directly to Brandon Trust. BTR pay us 35p per kilo.

We have a number of textile banks situated across our service areas. Please give your pre-loved textiles to Brandon Trust. We take shoes, clothes, curtains, towels and much more. Find out where your local bank is today.
