We are now accepting donations of unwanted clothing. This includes clothing, towels, household linens, shoes, belts, and handbags. WE ALSO ACCEPT MOBILE PHONES AND USED INKJET CARTRIDGES BUT PLEASE DONATE THESE IN A SEPARATE BAG.
Your donation will be converted into food for local people who access Angel Trust Food Bank, as well as granting wishes for those in County Durham and Darlington. You never know when you might need a helping hand.
MONDAY - FRIDAY
9aM - 5PM
Angel Trust building
Belvedere House, Kingsway
All of our clothing collections are arranged beforehand to avoid potential damage or theft, and minimise driving times for our volunteers. Our collection teams will visit anywhere in the County Durham and Darlington area.
You can also drop your donation at our Angel Trust hub during our opening hours if that is more convenient for you. we are located at belvedere house, kingsway, bishop auckland, dl14 7jn.
To arrange a collection, either call us on 01388 737270, or fill out our online form below. Please make sure to select a time when someone is going to be at the address.
We also run a network of community collections that take place on behalf of us, in people’s homes, local businesses, community centers etc. To find out if there is one taking place near you, please either drop us a message on Facebook, or call us on 01388 737270.
If you have a space that you think could be used as a community collection hub to host these events, please get in touch. The collection can last as long as you like, and when you’re done a member of our team will come and pick up the clothing on a date that suits you.
Any schools or nurseries that would like to support us with this project will be offered a 50/50 split of any money made from their generous donations.
