Collection company Clothes Aid has pledged to raise £2.3m for the NSPCC over the next three years.

Clothes Aid, which carries out house-to-house collections for charities, said it was aiming to collect almost six million bags of clothes through the partnership.

The organisations will share the proceeds from the sale of the clothes, with the NSPCC receiving £75 per tonne from house-to-house collections and Clothes Aid receiving around £10.

Clothes Aid is distributing NSPCC-branded collection bags in the UK and has guaranteed to raise a minimum of £525,000 for the charity in the first 12 months. Clothes Aid has agreed to make up the balance if it fails to reach the target within a year.

The organisation will also launch a one-stop mobile collection service in September for the NSPCC. This will involve a Clothes Aid van making large collections from workplaces and community centres and will result in a donation to the charity of £300 a tonne.

To reach the fundraising target, Clothes Aid will need to collect 5.9 million bags each weighing 5kg.
