After a disastrous start to 2016 with the Boxing Day Floods and the massive clean up operation that followed, we finally were able to welcome Candlelighters to our charity family!
With Unicare main operation being in Yorkshire, we were extremely excited at the prospect of working with the Yorkshire based charity. The work that Candlelighters do in helping children faced with cancer and their families is truly amazing. They need around £1.5 million a year to support children affected by cancer and their families therefore the money raised from our clothing collections will allow them to continue to grow and develop this support.
Around 150 children are diagnosed with cancer in our region each year, which makes the support Candlelighters offer incredibly important.

We are extremely excited to working with Candlelighters and hope our donations will help them alot with the fantastic work they do.
As most of our customers and partners are aware, we were unfortuantely severly affected by the floods that hit Boxing Day 2015. Our Hunslet required a large clean up operation with our warehouse and ground floor offices out of action for a while.
Although not the start the new year we were hoping for, we are eventually back to working full force!
During the tough time we were determined for our collection services to have minimal disruption and from the recent donations to our partner charities, we are happy to see that we were able to maintain this.
In total we have now donated almost £440,000 to our partner charities which we are thrilled with. It's good to know the collections are helping to make a difference.
Now back on our feet we can look forward and concentrate on what the rest of 2016 will bring!
Spring time is offically here so as the days get longer and the weather gets brighter (hopefully) take the opportunity to get rid of the old!
If you have clothes in your wardrobe that haven't seen the light of day for over a year, it's time to have a clear out. We all have clothes we cling on to 'just in case' but truth be told, if it's not been worn in over a year - you'll never wear it again!
So part with the clothes you no longer wear and make yourself some extra cash. We have Cash 4 Clothes depots in Hunslet and Crossgates! Visit www.cash-bag.co.uk to find us and our opening times.
We pay one of the best rates in Leeds, so what are you waiting for?
A huge welcome to Candlelighters!
Ending 2015 on a donation high!
