Support the Trust in other ways
Raise funds while you recycle!
Bag It Up (BIU) Group is one of the leading textile recycling organisations in the UK. They provide patented anti-theft clothes recycling banks across the country. Used clothing and shoes donated to the banks are then resold. MSA Trust receives part of the sale proceeds. The Trust is proud to be working with a partner which enables less waste to go to Landfill while raising vital funds for people affected by MSA. Banks are branded with information about MSA and the Trust, so this is a great way to raise awareness of the condition within a community.
There is no cost involved for the Trust or the venue hosting the Bank as BIU provide all the equipment and services needed to operate the recycling scheme. BIU only sell to recognised sorting or grading partners who in turn sell in markets where trade is free and fair. They have internal audit procedures that ensures these standards are maintained.
- Donate to a MSA Trust Recycling Bank near you
There is a MSAT recycling bank located at the Wilmslow Garden Centre (part of the Klondyke Garden Centres) near Manchester. If you live close by, please donate your old clothing and shoes to this bank! Proceeds from sale of donations collected here goes exclusively to MSA Trust. So encourage your family and friends to donate as well – every little helps!
- Suggest a venue to place a new recycling bank
BIU makes every effort to secure new venues for placing the banks but would appreciate local knowledge. So, this is where you can get involved. You can suggest a new venue for having the bank placed, and help the Trust get the resale proceeds from items donated at this new bank. To find out what makes an ‘ideal venue’, click HERE. If you think you know of such a venue email us. If you think it’s more appropriate, then please make initial contact with the venue. Although this is not a requirement, it sometimes helps for the enquiry to come from a local or ‘known face’. You would need to only ensure whether the venue/site owner would permit the banks to be placed. There is no further commitment required from you.
Unfortunately, BIU have partnerships with other charities in Dorset, Somerset, Berkshire, Oxfordshire, Buckinghamshire, Bristol, Bath, South Gloucestershire, Gloucestershire and Yorkshire. Therefore, sadly we cannot place banks in these locations. So, if you can think of any other, please get in touch. We will forward your suggestion to BIU who will contact the venue. There is no further commitment needed from you.
This would be an amazing way to support the Trust, while helping people to ‘declutter’. Thank you in advance for your support!
