When a child moves to a new home they don’t always come with many clothes and it can take a little while before the clothing grant arrives. We have a wonderful bunch of volunteers who put together shopping bags filled with a range of items for a specific age. We accept new and very good condition clothes which have been recently washed and comes from smoke free homes. As we do this in our spare time, it would make the world of difference if we knew that the goods we receive have been washed and if possible, were already sorted into ages with a sign on the box or bag. We can’t stress enough that the clothing is NOT ripped or stained in any way as we believe it is important for the gifter to understand that when you have little, holes or stains in clothes do not help the self esteem of the child.
- New or very good condition 2nd hand clothing
- Please ensure 2nd hand clothing has been RECENTLY WASHED
- Newborn to 17 years
- From a smoke free home
- No rips or stains please
- Sorted into ages if possible
Here is a list of some of the volunteers where you can deliver your clothing. Once sorted and bagged, these will be collected or delivered to social workers or foster agencies to give to children going into care.
