Some of the clothes we passed on directly to some homeless people, who help us at Druid Cycles, some clothes we recycle to make new designs.
Druid Cycles is not only a bicycle workshop. we have very skilled volunteers, who can do building works, repair electrical appliances or help in the garden. Please don't be shy to ask us to help you. We are a community project and here to help.

Hi Thor,

I'm relocating back to the States and am looking to donate clothes etc. before I depart. Are you still collecting? I live on Ladbroke Grove, W11 1PG. I'm not in need of a repair swap, I'm just looking for a good cause where I might donate my clothes. I have sweaters, shirts, trousers, some shoes and some suits which might be good for people looking to re-enter the work force, job interviews etc. Interested?
