Just before Christmas a generous donor took Clothes Aid’s ‘Bags of Support’ campaign slogan a little too literally when she donated a handbag that was found to contain £769.23 in cash.
The Clothes Aid collector who spotted the cash in a Macmillan Cancer Support bag in St Albans, handed it in, assuming it was someone’s hard earned savings. Hatfield Police Station held on to the sum for the obligatory four weeks. After that the money was gifted to Macmillan Cancer Support.
Clothes Aid have been the official clothes collection partner to Macmillan Cancer Support since 2012 and have raised over £450,000 nationwide to help provide nurses, financial grants, information and support to those who need it.
Since 1996 Clothes Aid has been generating income for charities. It now collects from over 45,000 households every week across the UK, and has now raised over £8 million for charities.
