People clear out the clutter for charity this festive season

Hair dryers, DIY equipment, foot spas and electric kettles; perfect Christmas gifts or complete turkeys. Fortunately for us, this Christmas all who visit www.preloved.co.uk can quickly turn their unwanted presents into raising money for Action for Children, the leading children’s charity. All this can be done in comfort in their own home too, so they won’t miss a second of Downton Abbey or Coronation Street.

www.preloved.co.uk is the biggest independent website selling second hand goods in the UK, and they have teamed up with Action for Children to encourage us to clear out our  unwanted clutter this festive season and help to raise the vital funds needed to support some of the most neglected and vulnerable young people and children.

A new charitable campaign, ‘Clear out the Clutter and take Action for Children’, will see Preloved donate £1 to Action for Children for every person who places a FREE advert on the website at http://www.preloved.co.uk/actionforchildren. The campaign will start on Boxing Day and run for an entire month until 31st January.

With the website attracting millions of visitors each month as one of the UK’s most popular classified advertising sites, it is hoped that ‘Clear out the Clutter and take Action for Children’ can generate thousands of pounds for Action for Children.

Ian Buzer, Managing Director of Preloved, said, “This is a win-win campaign for anyone who wants to get rid of a Christmas present that might not be to their taste, or start the New Year with a good clear out and turn their clutter into cash. For every new or existing member who takes out a FREE advert on our site it will trigger a £1 donation to Action for Children, so this is a great way to advertise unwanted items for absolutely nothing, make some extra money and raise funds for such an important UK charity.”

Emilia Carman, Head of High Value Fundraising at Action for Children, said, “This campaign is perfect for Action for Children; encouraging people to recycle is good for the environment and something we are happy to promote, and by getting a donation for every person who creates an advert, it will enable us to continue our aim of being there for the most disadvantaged, vulnerable and neglected children and young people in the UK for as long as it takes.”
