Scope and Japanese clothing company Uniqlo are launching a campaign to encourage the public to donate branded clothing to Scope charity shops.
The No Logo campaign will launch in August. When people donate their old branded clothing to Scope charity shops, they will be given a 10 per cent discount voucher for Uniqlo's "logo-free
basics clothing line.
In addition, a further 5 per cent of each sale of "logo-free
clothing will be given to Scope to support its work with cerebral palsy patients.
The Scope and Uniqlo partnership will officially launch at the opening of the retailer's new flagship store in London on 31 May. For the first week of trading, the company will donate £1 per sale from its summer clothing range to the charity.
In the autumn, Scope and Uniqlo will also be looking for a disabled person to become a face for the company's autumn/winter 2002/3 photoshoot.
"Uniqlo's philosophy hinges on diversity, which is a sparkling fit with our work of removing society's barriers to disabled people,
said David Crook, Scope's corporate partnership manager.
