Clothes Bank
31st May 2021
Clothes 4 Kids

We have all had a very difficult year and a half, but for some people it has caused serious hardship.

Many people will be without a job for the first time in their lives and they will not know where to go for help or who to ask.

As a church we need to do something to try and support our community. It was suggested to the 4 town centre churches that they come together to do something to help.

We have decided to organise a clothes bank for children’s clothes. We are asking for clothes from birth to 16 years old which are still of good quality, it is not a jumble sale.

We ask that they are laundered and ready to be given out as we do not have laundry facilities. We are also asking the 4 congregations to think about buying a pack of pants or socks when they do their shopping as no-one wants second-hand underwear and let’s not forget the babies who will need nappies.

The “Clothes 4 Kids”, starting on the 2nd August, will be open on a Monday and Wednesday morning in the St Bryce Kirk building but is a 4 church initiative.

Please consider supporting your project to support your community either by handing in new underwear or with a donation so that we can buy things that are needed.

We would also like to invite people to come and help.

Clothes and donations can be handed into the St Bryce Kirk building Monday – Thursday between 9am – 2pm.

Thank you
