Your Cast Off Clothing

The Heart Foundation gets most of our cast offs.

Where does yours go?

A few years back I found that as a example the Sally Ann only received £5 for each full skip of clothing/shoes collected in their name by a private company which exported all of it they collected.
Anyone know how much money they get nowadays for each full skip?

The plastic bags that people leave at the end of their driveways are not collected by volunteers from the charity mentioned on the bag, rather they are collected by private companies who commit to making a donation to the charity concerned.

A lot of plastic bags full of clothes are left out side your houses to be collected by Romanian scum bags who sell them on and keep all the money for themselves !

over here they have big yellow containers all over the place with a flip door tray to drop off old clothes which are then passed onto the poor.

Emmaus is another charity that I try to support with unwanted larger household items when I have time to take them the 20 miles or so to my nearest Emmaus community.

Sadly it did not take our Eastern European, er, guests very long to recognise and exploit the fact that so many of us are generous when it comes to trying to help the more disadvantaged in society, and it is now absolutely pointless in these parts  of putting any clothing etc. in a collection bin or leaving on our doorstep because they are regularly raided by our burgeoning Romanian and Albanian "neighbours."

Gypos - so long as they are the traditional Romany Gipsies - I don't mind. They may be rogues and poachers, but they ain't the sort of violent, thieving evil bastards that Pikeys ("travellers") are. (Cue histrionic reaction from t'other place where that lying bastard "Angry" Andy and that fucking brain-dead Outback racist moron Wolfie will probably now be "outing" me as a racist, ultra-Right wing, neo-nazi, fascist, Corbyn-hating (spot on there, mateys) etc. beast.)

Pikey is a very old, probably even medieval, word for "pikeman"...not the bloke whose job was to shove an 18 foot long pole with a steel pointy end up some poor Froggie's arse at Agincourt but an itinerant (that means "travelling for the benefit of the semi-literate Aussies Wolfie and Veya) tradesman such as a scissor grinder or pot mender who roamed turnpikes of Ye Olde England)

I would have to disagree with you about gypsies being the salt of the earth. Many years back when I was touring with a band in germany we agreed to do a gig for a gypsy wedding, Romanian ones if I remember rightly. I cant recall if they were big or fat. However everything was fine and they enjoyed the gig and we packed up the gear and asked for the money and they turned on us in a heartbeat, we were lucky to get out unharmed and they were throwing rocks and sticks at the van as we beat a hasty retreat. We did not get the money.
