Public invited to donate unwanted clothes in lead up to Christmas

Residents are invited to donate unwanted clothes in the lead up to Christmas to a charity clothes bank set up at Lichfield Fire Station.  If you need to create space in your wardrobe(s) for new Christmas gifts, why not consider getting your unwanted clothes recycled?

The Fire Fighters Charity clothes bank located at Lichfield Fire Station is available to receive donations 24hrs a day.

The charity provides all fire service personnel and their families throughout their careers and beyond with mental and physical health support.

Leigh Richards, Station Manager at Staffordshire Fire and Rescue Service, said: “If you're having a clear out of your wardrobe, I’d encourage you to donate to the charity and donate clothing to the clothing bank outside Lichfield Fire Station in the lead up to Christmas.

“It can be from adult’s and children’s clothing including socks, coats and unwanted shoes.

“We are proud to be supporting the Fire Fighters Charity. The donated clothing, shoes, handbags and textiles will be collected by the charity’s recycling partners and wearable clothing will be re-used worldwide.”
