/ Old sleeping bag - to charity?
I don't want it as I have a much better one now, but it seems a bit too good just to throw away. I feel it would be useful to a homeless charity or suchlike, but it would need a very good wash first. Does anybody have any suggestions about where I could take it, or should I just throw it out?
I am currently in Durham, moving to Glasgow. I'm afraid I don't have the time/patience to get it properly washed as I am snowed under with moving hassle.
If you take it to a charity shop for them to sell and it's mouldy then it'll end up in the bin. Or, depending on the charity, it may go in the "rag bag" and be recycled for its fibres. Some charities even have local schemes where they bag up absorbent rag like jeans a T-shirts and sell them per bag to local garages to use as hand wipes.
I don't know about charities that give stuff to homeless people..
The salvation army are the best bet I reckon, they actually give donations to people they are helping rather than flog stuff for cash.
...and use that cash to buy thing to help the people hey are helping.
