FareShare is a UK wide charity fighting hunger and tackling food waste. The charity redistributes thousands of tonnes of good quality, in-date, surplus food to 9,500 fantastic frontline charities. These local organizations help feed and support disadvantaged people across the UK. Nearly 14 million people in the UK are experiencing food insecurity – that’s one in five people. At the same time over 2 million tonnes of good-to-eat food is wasted each year. Donations go towards helping FareShare to redistribute surplus food. They help the charity to reach vulnerable people, ranging from isolated elderly people at community lunches, schoolchildren at breakfast and afterschool clubs to people at homelessness shelters.
FareShare food plays a vital role in connecting people with local services that can provide regular meals and wraparound support. Food connects people most in need with the interventions that address the root causes of hunger, rather than just the symptom. A hot meal can bring someone struggling to a support centre, where they can find the people and services that can help them to get back on their feet. FareShare food helps charities and the people that engage with them access types and quality of food that might ordinarily be out of reach. For those on limited budgets, this means that they can access healthier and more nutritious food, such as fruit and vegetables.
With support and charitable donations, FareShare can continue to have an impact on a small and large scale. A person facing hunger can get the food they need. The frontline charities that FareShare redistributes an incredible amount of food to can go on to reach over one million people each year. If you select FareShare as your chosen charity, then Collect my Clothes will donate £250 for each ton of items collected. This could help FareShare provide enough food for 1000 meals – thank you.

I had never heard of this company until Google I was very impressed with their background and company ethics. I contacted them to collect clothes had response within the hour came this morning driver very polite and helpful please if you want to recycle use them.
This is my first time using this organisation and I was satisfied with their service. This was suitable for me as I am working and would not be able to drop clothes at shops, so having someone picking up the clothes was convenient. Thank you for this free service and would like to donate again.
I received a reply from Daryl on the day I emailed and a collection date the next day! Collection was prompt! Daryl answered any questions I asked by email within the hour. Highly recommend using this company!
Great service, very easy to arrange collection. Collection team were polite and professional and respectful of my property. Highly recommended.
Contacted Thursday, and collected 6 bin bags of clothes the following Monday when they said they would! (Could have picked an earlier collection but this suited me). Fantastic service for a worthy cause. Thank you so much, will definitely be using again, have recommended to friend's and family.
Collection was arranged promptly and the driver was friendly, punctual, and efficient. Very happy with how the process from start to finish was quick and easy. Fantastic service.
I Have used this service on a couple of occasions and have found from booking the collection to pick up on the date arranged to be outstanding! The staff in the office and drivers are professional and extremely helpful. I could choose from a number of charity’s to support I would highly recommend this company and will most definitely use again throughout the year!
I had a lot of clothes that needed collecting, collect my clothes were very efficient, polite and courteous. The collection was booked for the following day and was done completely contact free. I am pleased the clothes will get reused and contribute to raising funds for charity. Win win! Would highly recommend, thank you!
Pickup was arranged very quickly and I could select the charity I wanted my donation to go to. The driver rang prior to picking up to let me know when he'd be here. Very professional. Being disabled I cant travel out so this was a great option to allow me to donate my clothes etc.
