RESIDENTS have been asked to donate unwanted textile gifts to an air ambulance charity.

The recycling of textiles is the second largest single source of income for Hampshire and Isle of Wight Air Ambulance service.

Throughout the year, the charity urges people to collect any unwanted clothing, shoes and other textiles and donate them to a good cause.

John Perry, chief executive of HIOWAA, said ‘The majority of the textile donations we receive at this time of year have come from wardrobe clear-outs.

‘With clothing banks at recycling sites across our region, there are plenty of places for people to take last season’s garments and put them to a worthwhile cause.’
