Donate your old clothes, support charity, and be inspired to upcycle

This month, Love Your Clothes has joined forces with Tesco and Cancer Research UK to spread the message about recycling and upcycling clothes.

Tesco’s clothing brand F&F have set up instore donation stations to collect your unwanted clothing for charity across the UK in Tesco stores: these will be in 102 UK Tesco stores from 4th April to 1st May. All of the clothing donated in this time will be distributed among local Cancer Research UK stores. Last year’s event raised £100,000 for Cancer Research UK through donations from the public along with the contribution of unsold F&F stock.
