Donate your clothing to Blue Cross

Do you have high-quality clothing and accessories that you want to donate to help support pets?

We need your designer and vintage clothing and accessories to continue supporting sick, injured and abandoned pets. By donating these items using The Clothes Line, we can raise vital funds which will go towards caring for pets and ensuring they find the right home. And it couldn’t be easier.

How does The Clothes Line work?

Step 1 - sign up below

Sign up below, and we'll be in contact to ask a couple of quick questions about your donation. 

Step 2 - fill your bag

Have a sort-out and find those pre-loved clothes and accessories; all those once 'must-haves' of the season, and simply pop them in the bag. There are a few guidelines you should follow to ensure your donations reach us in perfect condition:

  1. Fill your bag - but please don't overfill it. Once you've donated, you can contact us direct to discuss requesting another bag.
  2. Ensure any shoes you're donating are boxed (don't worry if it's not the original box). Bags need to have flat sides, not angles that might rip in transit.
  3. Compress any extra air in the bag and make sure you can close it securely and easily with the seal provided.

Step 3 - book a collection

Now your bag’s filled with excellent clothes and accessories you no longer wear, you’re ready to book your collection. 

Step 4 - what we do with your donations

Your donations are sorted, steamed and priced in our warehouse and sent to our shops to be sold in the usual way. We don't use any third parties, so you can relax safe in the knowledge that you're making a real difference to pets in our care.
