Barretstown benefits hugely from the generosity of many people just like you. There are lots of ways that you can support Barretstown. Household and Collection Fundraising days can be organised through your local community, work place or by you individually. We require any unwanted clothes, paired shoes, handbags and belts as well as any old mobile phones, books, and any unwanted scrap metal. All you have to do is to advise us of a collection date and we will do the rest. We will arrive at your home and remove all items, these are then weighed there and then and we will make a donation directly to Barretstown on your behalf.


Barretstown offers free, specially designed camps and programmes that are designed for children and their families living with a serious illness – all supported behind the scenes by 24 hour on site medical and nursing care. Since Barretstown first opened its doors in 1994 they have served over 40,000 campers from Ireland and overseas

Placing a clothing bank on a premises requires no effort from you and it takes up minimal space (approximately half a car parking space) to ensure convenience of use. A Contribution is made to Barretstown for all materials recovered and the clothing bank is clearly marked with Barretstown logos.
Once you have identified a suitable site all you need do is contact us and advise us where you wish the clothing bank to be placed. We closely monitor all clothing bank locations to ensure they are maintained to the highest standard and all our vehicles are equipped to remove any additional waste if found to maintain the site and your premises. A service level agreement between Dolly Textile Recycling and Barretstown can assure you of a fast and efficient service and at all times.
