How you can help by donating pre-loved clothing and essential items
For those on the street, products that we take for granted are often hard to come by or beyond their means. Pre-loved winter clothing and daily essentials such as sanitary products and nutritious food make a huge difference not only to physical health but to wellbeing and dignity too.
Donating essential items such as pre-loved Winter clothing, toiletries and food that’s easy to eat is a simple way to directly support those in need – and you can be sure that what you give goes straight to those in need.
Thanks to the help of our sponsor Smiths News, you can drop items off at any of the following locations:
