Bring your old clothes to intu Milton Keynes this March and do your bit for charity with the Fashion Month Clothes Amnesty.
The Clothes Amnesty takes place from Tuesday 10 until the end of March. Shoppers are invited to bring their old, unwanted or unworn clothes to the shopping centre to be donated to local charity, Open Door. The donation station is a giant Perspex cube located on Central Boulevard.
Open Door will put the donated items to good use, helping to provide clothes for homeless people in Milton Keynes.
Founded in 1987, Open Door aims to support homeless people by providing food, clothing and toiletries at drop in centres in Conniburrow and Bletchley. Help and advice is provided on topics such as housing, drug and alcohol misuse, and employment. The charity also previously set up two hostels and a deposit guarantee scheme, and runs activities for service users to promote self-esteem and develop skills.
Elaine Ansell, Drop in Project Co-ordinator at Open Door, said: "There are many homeless people in Milton Keynes who will benefit from the clothing amnesty. It is heart-warming to know that there are people thinking of those less fortunate than themselves."
Martin Hindson, General Manager at intu Milton Keynes, said: “We are delighted to partner with Open Door and contribute to their important work. It is fantastic to be able to support the charity in sourcing much-needed clothing to help those in need.”
