Give your threadbare sheets and faded curtains a new lease of life

We are encouraging people to donate textiles and fabrics to our shops in Matlock, Melton and Blaby where we will give them a second life.

As well donating unwanted clothes and household goods to our shops, we also want threadbare sheets, worn out towels and faded curtains.

Rainbows can give the items a new life by sending them to a recycling merchant, where they are shipped to other countries or made in to new garments.
