The aim of the Queen Mother’s Clothing Guild is to buy, make and source new clothing, sleeping bags and linen and distribute these items once a year to British charities, operating only in the United Kingdom, to help vulnerable and homeless people.
The Queen Mother’s Clothing Guild is one of the oldest charities in the United Kingdom, established in 1882, to support those in need. QMCG works to improve the lives of the homeless and vulnerable by supporting charities across the United Kingdom, supplying them with items they have difficulty in sourcing themselves, but which are greatly needed in order to continue the wonderful work they are doing to help those with specific needs.
QMCG currently supports 30 homeless charities, 20 hospices, 5 hospitals, 20 homes for the elderly and 4 women’s refuges.
QMCG believes that the gift of new clothing or linen provides not only warmth and comfort but helps to restore dignity and self-respect.
Fund raising is obviously an on going process. Donations of money are specifically used to purchase required items of clothing or linen from various warehouses.
