Over £35,000 raised through Nisa’s clothing banks
Since their launch to Nisa retailers in 2021, Making a Difference Locally (MADL) clothing banks have raised more than £35,000 for local causes, with over 50 units now currently located outside Nisa stores across the UK.
The clothing banks allow Nisa customers to accumulate additional money into their MADL fund; in turn enabling them to provide further support to their local communities, whilst helping to reduce the environmental impact of unwanted clothing and textiles.
Making a Difference Locally clothing banks are available free of charge to Nisa retailers, in partnership with Nathan’s Waste Savers, and every clothing and textile donation is either sold, reused, or recycled - nothing goes to waste.
The banks require no maintenance from retailers as they are installed, serviced, and emptied regularly free of charge, making them a simple and hassle-free way for retailers to raise additional charity funds. Once clothing banks have been weighed and emptied, funds raised are banked into the store’s MADL account and donated to a local good cause of the store’s choosing.
Warm clothing continues to be sent to Ukraine and further supplies will be sent to Turkey and Syria following recent devastating earthquakes.
Kate Carroll, Nisa’s Head of Charity, said: “We began working with Nathan’s Waste Savers in May 2021 and are really pleased with how the partnership is going.
“The events currently in Ukraine and also in Turkey and Syria are devastating so I would encourage Nisa retailers and shoppers to contribute to the clothing banks so we can get much-needed clothing supplies to the areas of the world in most need.”
