The Salvation Army

We have partnered with the Salvation Army to help divert our waste from landfill by recycling and reusing our faulty damaged goods. Through collecting and donating unwanted clothing, textiles, footwear and electricals we can reduce landfill waste whilst raising funds to help transform the lives of those in need. Many of our stores already donate to the charity, now our support centres will contribute.

In 2017 6.3 tonnes of product was donated to the Salvation army, which goes towards helping many people and causes.
