Charities we support

We’re proud to support some brilliant charities who are working hard to make the world a bit brighter.

Waste not, want not

We do everything we can to ensure Boden clothing never ends up in landfill by donating unsold and faulty (but still wearable) items to charity. We’re partnering with Newlife, National Police Aid Convoys, Scope, M25M and jailbirds. Customers who participate in our ‘Pass it On’ recycling scheme contribute to this work. 

Newlife is changing the lives of thousands of disabled and terminally ill children across the UK by supporting them and their families by fast-tracking life-changing equipment. They fund high-quality research which aims to improve health and support a better quality of life. And support families with tailored help through a nurse-manned national helpline. In 2020 and 2021, we donated over 7 tonnes of clothing to Newlife, which was sold to generate donations. 

Similarly, the National Police Aid Convoys (NPAC) is a fantastic organisation that delivers humanitarian aid to disaster zones or places that need emergency support. Since 2019, we’ve donated not fit for sale clothing to The Commonwealth of Dominica, Syria and Africa. 

We’ve worked with the charity, Scope since 2013. During this time, sales of over £1 million have assisted their campaign towards a fairer and more equal society for people with disabilities, providing them with practical information and emotional support. 

We’ve also donated 30 tonnes of clothing to countries in urgent need and over 100,000 items to our US charity partner M25M and British initiative jailbirds, a social enterprise supporting young female offenders in prisons through the discovery of art, creativity, and life skills..

The Charlie Waller Trust

The Charlie Waller Trust educates and support young people (and those with responsibility for them) about their mental health and wellbeing. In late 2019, to coincide with World Mental Health Day, we launched a collection of slogan T-shirts (dreamed up by Mini customers) and donated the proceeds to the Trust.

We continue to support The Charlie Waller Trust through fundraising, volunteering and donating opportunities to try and enable the great work that they do to continue to grow.

British baby banks

For the past year, we’ve been working with British baby banks in order to support families who could do with a helping hand. So far, we’ve donated almost 500 items of clothing to Baby Basics, Little Village and AberNecessities, and we’d now be delighted if you’d consider doing the same.

Not only is donating to initiatives such as this a gesture of togetherness in these uncertain times, it’s also a good thing for the planet.
