Today I collected a car load of clothing and textiles from one of our JCI members towards our recycling campaign for Guide Dogs for the Blind.
We all, I’m sure, have bundles of clothing, bedding, curtains, shoes, handbags, belts and soft toys in our wardrobes, cupboards and attics – things we’ll never use again.
Taking the time to clear out these items not only gives a sense of satisfaction in knowing you’re clearing out, but will also, if you donate them to JCI Reading, help to raise money for Guide Dogs for the Blind!
Collect together all your unwanted clothing items as detailed above and contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org to arrange handover. They’ll be added to our ever increasing piles of sacks ready for collection on 20th January 2012 – so hurry, let’s make a good start to our 2012 Guide Dogs for the Blind ‘Name a Puppy’ campaign. One full sack of clothing could add as much as £5 to the campaign depending upon the weight, so every last item counts!
