We want to make it easy as possible for you to donate your unwanted clothing.
Our clothing bag collection teams are a regular sight throughout the North-East, North Yorkshire and Cumbria. The green and white collection bags are distributed by our team and then collected three days later. The collection date is shown clearly on the sleeve of the bag. Our fleet of vehicles are marked with our logo and all of our drivers carry identification badges.
If you ever miss the date for our clothing collections or feel uncomfortable putting your bag out in case of theft, we also offer arranged collections Monday to Saturday.
The areas our collection teams visit include County Durham, the Wear Valley, Tees Valley, Northumberland and Cumbria.
To arrange a collection at a time that suits you, just call our team on 01325 308 139, or fill out the enquiry form online.Request a collection
We have an ever-growing network of community collections that take place in people’s homes, businesses and village halls. To find out if there is one taking place in your area, please get in touch.
We’d also love to hear from you if you can spare some space to hold your own collection. The bag collection activity can last as long as you would prefer and a member of our friendly collection team will then come and pick up the clothing on a date that suits you.Contact us
We accept clothing, household linens, shoes in pairs, and handbags. We also accept mobile phones and used inkjet cartridges; please donate these in a separate bag.
Yes! If you have more clothing to donate than fits in your GNAAS bag, please put them out alongside your GNAAS bag. If you don’t have a GNAAS bag, please get in touch to arrange a collection. You can donate your clothing in any bag.
We receive a very good price for the clothing from our buyers, many of whom are based in mainland Europe. Donated items are often sold in clothing shops; nothing is shredded or sold as rags.
We always collect in Great North Air Ambulance Service branded vans. Our fleet of vehicles are marked with our logo and all of our drivers carry identification badges. If you have any queries, please give our team a call on 01325 308 139.
Unfortunately, we aren’t able to collect unwanted furniture, bric-a-brac, toys/games, CD’s/DVD’s, homeware, electricals, duvets, pillows or cushions.
