It’s that time of year again when the weather takes a turn and the nights draw in, therefore it’s time for years project to help people less fortunate in our area.

Message from organiser :

“You may notice I have been quite specific about the clothing needed, the donations provided each year are amazing and so generous, unfortunately some people tend to donate bags of items that would traditionally go to the charity shop and not suitable for the service users which makes my work load huge whilst sorting through. I hope this does not cause offence as you guys are all wonderful and amaze me each year with your generosity.

This year I will not be having a drop off prior to the event, therefore I will be holding the event over 2 days where I will be at the forge to greet you and collect donations through a separate marked entrance. If anyone struggles with this please message me.

I will be at The Forge on the 6th and 7th of December between 10am-3pm to collect and sort rucksacks.

Please feel free to message me with any questions.

Thank you for your support! (again 💚) “
