Theft from Charity Donation Sites

It saddens me to report that there have been large scale thefts logged from charity clothing collection sites local and nationally. 


If you regularly use clothing banks, usually found in supermarket car parks, please try to deliver directly to the charity premises or call them to arrange a collection to ensure the donation reaches your chosen charity.


With the price of second hand textiles on the rise it is suspected that organised crime gangs (OCG's) target clothing banks which then often funds further exploitation and criminality.
