LAUNCH OF CLOTHES BANK AND CLOTHING DONATIONS FOR RESIDENTS IN LOCAL EMERGENCY ACCOMMODATION:
(This initiative is run by St John’s Church and Brownswood Mutual Aid group)
Wishlist & Info updated 16 July 2020
A mid-week reminder about DONATIONS for CLOTHES BANK / CLOTHING for RESIDENTS in LOCAL EMERGENCY ACCOMMODATION: Thank you very much for your support of the weekly Clothes Bank session at St Johns church, alongside that for residents in local emergency accommodation. Volunteers report the new underwear and clothing are gratefully received.
Both, the residents in local emergency accommodation and people coming to the Soup Kitchen and Food Bank at St John’s remain in desperate need of clothing.
There remains a shortage of practical men’s clothing in all sizes. i.e. jeans or tracksuits bottoms, tee shirts and underwear. We had a particular request for size 11 Trainers this week.
Also, practical, larger women’s sizes, especially 18 to 20 e.g. tracksuit bottom and loose tee shirts.
(A good guideline to ‘practical’ is if they are not formal wear and can be washed at 50/60 degrees).
