A MASS spring clean across South Perth has resulted in about $4000 worth of clothing donated to Red Cross shops to support the charity’s vital humanitarian work.

The initiative to encourage locals to clean out their closets ran across seven Specsavers stores in WA, with customers donating hundreds of kilograms of pre-loved clothing.

Specsavers Waterford co-owner Janet Gates said it was great to see staff and customers come together to make a difference.

“We’re proud to have supported Red Cross through this initiative and to do our part supporting those in need,” she said.

“We want to thank the community and Specsavers customers for generously donating pre-loved clothing.

“Thanks to your spring cleaning, funds raised through the sale of clothes will go toward our vital work, helping people overcome crisis, disadvantage and personal hardship.”

A team of Red Cross volunteers will sort and distribute the donated items to Red Cross stores across WA, with the sales of items supporting the charity’s work.
