Hebrides Alpha and Bethesda are working in partnership to provide a Textile bank service in Lewis & Harris.
Items collected include clothing, sheets, towels, handbags, curtains, belts & footwear (shoes, boots, trainers, wellies, slippers which should be tied in pairs or kept separate in Co-op/Tesco type bags).
The textiles must be dry, not ripped and must be wearable. Items should be placed in bags, so that when the banks are emptied, it makes the job easier and the clothes are kept dry.
Monies raised from selling the items in the banks go towards supporting the local work of the Bethesda Hospice and Hebrides Alpha.
The goods are sold to Blythswood Care and they sell most of the items across the Highlands and other items are sent to Romania, where the monies raised support a number of initiatives including the Daniel Centre orphanage in Cluj-Napoca.
