White Brothers is a unique product sourcing company that has been selling exclusively to the UK charity sector since 2008.
We are currently the only company that tailors its product range solely to the requirements of UK charities and we have earned a reputation as the supplier of choice for new products in the sector.
White Brothers was originally established as a supplier of men’s accessories to the independent menswear trade until owners Matthew Keates and Bruce Rolls identified an opportunity to supply new products into charity shops.
Our reputation for sourcing an attractive range of products to complement charities shops core donations, coupled with a flexible approach to distribution and a focus on outstanding customer service, has enabled the business to experience rapid growth in the sector.
Today White Brothers supplies over 40% of charity shops across the country with new products ranging from socks and underwear to designer handbags & branded toys. Our customers range from large national charities to small regionally based organisations all supporting a wide variety of worthy charitable causes.
White Brothers have twice received the Charity Retail Association’s “Most Supportive Supplier” award (2013 & 2014). An award we think reflects perfectly the contribution we have made to the sector.
More recently (2016) we have been honoured to receive a Queens Award for Enterprise in the category of innovation. An outstanding achievement for the business in recognition of the innovative new supply model we have created.
Our values reflect the sector we work in. By putting the needs of our customers first we have created a successful business that is based largely on trust and “the common good” of generating additional revenues for charitable causes nationwide. We work hard to maintain the goodwill of our suppliers and customers alike and this has created a strong, resilient supply chain that we are committed to sustaining and developing into the future.
