One of the two charities we are supporting this year through our fundraising efforts is BIADS, Barnsley Independent Alzheimer’s and Dementia Support. BIADS used to have a lovely shop in The Arcade in Barnsley, however it has recently closed and a valuable fundraising revenue has been lost.

 

We are therefore organising a clothes and possession collection, which we will then cash in with WeBuyClothes.co.uk. WeBuyClothes.co.uk will convert the weight of goods into cash, and we will then donate these funds received to BIADS.

 

Perhaps you have been planning to do a wardrobe clear out in readiness for changing from winter to summer wear, or maybe you are preparing for a house move and decluttering in the process. Now is the time to have a good sort out, and raise money for a really worthwhile charity in the process.
