Donate unwanted clothes

Your unwanted clothes can help us to support people affected by cancer


Any time! Keep an eye out for one of our green and white Macmillan Clothes Aid bags coming through your letterbox.

How you can help

If you receive a bag, please fill it up with your unwanted clothes and leave it outside your house for Clothes Aid, our clothing collection partner, to collect on the specified collection day.

Our mission

Macmillan has raised £1m to date – enough to pay for 20 nurses for a year! This year we’re aiming to raise a further £500,000 – which could unlock over £11m in benefits for people living with cancer.

The project will be building up over the next 12 months, so keep an eye out for our lovely white and green bags in your area.

If you need to contact Clothes Aid

If you have any questions about collections, including having a missed bag, forgetting to put your bag outside on the collection day or wanting to organise a one-off collection please contact Clothes Aid directly on or call 020 7288 8545 (Mon-Fri 9am-5pm). There is also further information about clothing collections on the Clothes Aid website.
