Charities are hit by changes in other areas

Have your say

CHARITIES have also been hit where changes in the textile bank system have been enforced in other areas.

Fareham Borough Council last year agreed to take 10 per cent of money raised from recycling bins on its property.

It comes after the authority originally proposed to take 25 per cent, whilst divvying up the rest to good causes chosen by members and residents.

Cuts to textile bank income were proposed in Gosport but thrown out.

Portsmouth City Council took over the running of recycling of recycling banks from charities around two years ago.
