Why should I donate?

Donating your unwanted items to charity isn’t just about clearing up space in your wardrobe or raising money for charity. 

Although these are two great reasons to donate, your donations will also change people’s lives, reduce your environmental impact, and help keep the charity retail sector alive. With Gone for Good, you can do all this and fit it into your busy life using our revolutionary app.

Why should we donate?

£140 million of clothing goes into landfills each year.

There’s an estimated £30 billion of unused clothing in wardrobes.

With a charity, anything that isn’t sold will be recycled instead.

There are around 11,200 charity shops across the UK.
