We need your help!

Exciting news! East Lancashire Hospice have entered into a partnership with Salvation Army Trading to locate up to ten clothing collection banks in our area and we need your help to find locations for them!

We are looking for locations such as car parks which are adjacent to busy main roads with plenty of passing traffic. Could you help?

This is a simple way that you or your business can help raise vital funds for the hospice without any input from yourselves as there is no maintenance or upkeep required from anyone providing the location. The banks are available in two sizes 4f x 8ft or 3ft x 5ft and will be emptied weekly. 

The banks will;

  • allow people to recycle unwanted clothes shoes and fashion accessories quickly, easily and conveniently
  • raise money for East Lancashire Hospice
  • divert clothes from going to landfill
  • make it easy for people to donate

Locations need to be;

  • visible from a main or busy road with plenty of passing traffic
  • have parking adjacent to the bank (which makes car parks an ideal location)
  • be accessible for a truck to empty

Once the sites have been chosen, the locations of the banks will be advertised via the hospice website and social media pages.

If you think you can help or want any further information please contact Dawn on 01254 287010 or email dawn.­neary@­eas­tla­nc­shos­pi­ce.­org.­uk.­
