Clothes Aid, the UK’s leading charity clothing collection agency have announced a new partnership with the Bradley Lowery Foundation.
They'll raise at least £20,000 annually for the charity.
The Bradley Lowery Foundation support fundraising campaigns including the one for local boy Alex, Ear for Alex.
Alex (pictured), from Greatham, was born with Microtia (literally ‘little ear’) and needs to travel to the USA for specialist treatment to reconstruct his ear and restore his hearing.
Clothes Aid are delivering bags and stickers throughout the North-East and residents can simply fill a bag with quality clothing, shoes and accessorises and Clothes Aid will collect it on the nominated day.
Businesses, schools or community groups whom would like to support Bradley Lowery Foundation can arrange a bespoke collection with Clothes Aid at their convenience.
Bags and stickers will be posted throughout houses in Durham, Middlesbrough, Sunderland, Darlington, Northumberland, North Tyneside, Gateshead, Stockton and Redcar.
Lynn Murphy, Communications Director at the Bradley Lowery Foundations said
“We are so excited with this new partnership. We have tremendous support from our community and I know residents will dig deep to their wardrobes and help us help our fantastic kids like Alex”
Michael Lomotey, Business Manager at Clothes Aid said
“We have high hopes for this partnership and our local depot and staff are thrilled to be supporting a charity so close to their hearts and home.”
