Shirt retailer TM Lewin has teamed up with housing and homelessness charity Shelter for the launch of National Shirt Exchange Week.
The week will run from September 26 to October 2 and the incentive aims to encourage the public to donate unwanted shirts to be sold on in Shelter shops. To donate shirts customers can either visit a TM Lewin store or donate a shirt online with shoppers sent donation bags via the retailer’s website.
During National Shirt Exchange Week TM Lewin will also donate £2 from the sale of every shirt purchased. Money raised will help people in need of housing find a new home.
To celebrate the week TM Lewin will build a house made of shirts in Paternoster Square in London on September 26 and Spinningfields in Manchester on September 28.
Geoff Quinn, chief executive officer of TM Lewin, said: “I’m really pleased TM Lewin are working with Shelter. Our aim is to both donate shirts from our customers and to raise much needed funds for people in housing need. We all have old shirts tucked away in our cupboard – please dig them out and join in our shirt exchange so we can all support Shelter together.”
