UPS staff across Ireland have hosted Enable Ireland's biggest ever bring-back day.

Almost 700 workers at the shipping and delivery company donated 1,789 bags of unwanted clothes, shoes, accessories, books, DVDs and bric-a-brac over a four-week period.

"This has been the biggest yield from a Bring-Back Day that I can remember," said Deirdre Kelly of Enable Ireland.

"The staff of UPS really showed the fun that organisations can have with this initiative and how simple it is. We look forward to working with them again in the future."

The donations will be sold in Enable Ireland's 21 charity shops nationwide.

Founded in 1948, Enable Ireland provides services for 4,500 children and adults with disabilities, including Mila Williams and Finn Dempsey (pictured), in 15 regional locations.

Proceeds go directly to improving the services, including pre-school equipment, assistive technology, outdoor play areas and hydrotherapy treatment pools.

"At UPS we are always looking for ways to give back to the communities within which we operate," added Almudena Losada.
