A clothing alteration shop has teamed up with The Salvation Army to collect winter clothing for the homeless.

The campaign, run by The ZipYard was launched on Tuesday in the High Street by the Mayor of Windsor and Maidenhead, Cllr Sayonara Luxton.

Dijay Soni, director of The ZipYard said: “For the past two years, we have set up a drop off point for unwanted warm clothing, from jumpers and cardigans to hats and gloves. Our trained seamstresses quickly mend any items that need a repair and we hand it on to The Salvation Army in good condition.”

In return for donating items, customers will be given a 10 per cent discount for ani item of their clothing for repairs or alterations.

Donations can be dropped off at the shop in the High Street Monday to Saturday from 9-5pm.
