SOS clothes ltd,

All profit gained from clothes sale is donated to 'Tree of hope childrens charity'

reg charity 1043092

I need to have a clear out but know some of these are dodgy.

The charity themselves are certainly legitimate but I would question how much SOS Clothes Ltd actually passes onto the charity. My guess is not much.

If you want to donate clothes I would actually give them directly to the charity shop in question and not use any firm that purports to pay on a percentage to the charity concerned.

I only put clothes in the plastic bags that charities put through the letterbox; these tend to be white in colour with the charity's name prominently displayed on the plastic packaging.

It says at least £2000 per month.
