Byronswell Ltd and Samuel’s Charity working together.
Byronswell contacted us last year as they wanted to support a Children’s Charity in the UK. This is personal to the Jarek, the owner, and the staff as Jarek’s son was very ill and Jarek set up a charity in Poland to help other kids. He wanted to help kids here too.
This is why we are working together – a shared desire to make the lives of sick children better, to bring some relief, fun and smiles to an otherwise painful and scary time.
A brief overview of Byronswell:
“Established in 2003, Byronswell Ltd is a textile recycling company based in Southampton, Hampshire. Our operation is simple: we specialise in textile banks and house to house bag distribution and collection nationwide. The bags of donated textiles and other items are collected, weighed and then transported for onward sale in Eastern European second-hand shops, as well as other worldwide markets including Africa and Pakistan where recycled goods are much needed.
We then donate part of this money generated to Samuel’s Charity. Our mission is to raise significant funds for Samuel’s Charity and help raise the national profile of the valuable work they do.
For every tonne sold from door to door collections, we will donate £75 to Samuel’s Charity, and from our charity textile banks we will donate £120 per tonne. Since 2008 we have raised a total of £253687.37 for children’s charities Dreams Come True and Round Table Children’s Wish, helping them to grant wishes for seriously ill children and young people all over the UK.”

How else could you help?
Along with donation any unwanted clothes or household items we can pick up directly from private premises like an office or other place of work. If you would like to help this way then do contact Byronswell Ltd and they will arrange it for you.
Security and assurance
Along with complying to the legislation for collection of donated items Byronswell volunteers and staff will have ID badges. If you are unsure then do contact us to check if we are collecting in your area.
You may have already had a collection bag delivered – Byronswell Ltd applies for and gains authorisation with each local authority before any delivery of donation bags begin and this process is strictly controlled. If you have any questions please email email@example.com and they will help.
