We have recently had to remove a few of our textile banks at Sainsbury's sites in Hampshire. Â Sainsbury's have made the decision to work exclusively with Oxfam for textile recycling at their stores. We have only been allowed to keep our banks where we are charity of the year or have previously been charity of the year at the manager's discretion, so we still have a number of sites across Hampshire and the Isle of Wight.
With your help, we will continue to work towards being nominated again at the stores we have lost, new stores, and existing stores. Meanwhile, it may help our case if any of you would be happy to make a call to your local Sainsbury's stating that you are a supporter of HIOWAA and ask where the clothing bank has gone from the car park?Â
The banks that have been removed are from:-
â€¢ Sainsburys Wallington Fareham
â€¢ Sainsburys Commercial Road Portsmouth
â€¢ Sainsburys Farlington
â€¢ Sainsburys Tadley Basingstoke
Thanks so much for your support.
