What else you can donate

Would you like to be a volunteer?

Our volunteers collect donations, sort clothes and store them, pack items for families and deliver them to outreach centres. We generally look for volunteers to work 2-3 hours a week, and you need to be at least 16 years old. If you are enthusiastic and would like to help  please do ​get in touch.

Could you support us financially?

We try to keep our financial overheads to a minimum, however there are certain costs associated with running a charity such as rent and rates, buying storage boxes, printing, and hosting a website. We rely on financial donations and grants to cover any costs we have.
