I'm afriad this applies to most of the companies that leave fliers asking for bags of clothes. The clothes then tend to be sold in bulk for recycling into rags - often abroad.
The clue is that usually there is a company, rather than chairty number on the flier. If in doubt check the Charity Commision website to see if it is a genuine charity:
The best way to donate clothes to charity is to take them into a charity shop when it is open, or call or email your favourite charity and ask them if you can donate good or clothes to them.
