The Daventry Bromford Support team is asking people to clear out their closets and donate any unwanted clothes to help those most in need with the launch of Daventry’s first clothes bank.
Following on from the success of its recent ‘Living below the Line’ campaign to highlight those living in extreme poverty, the Daventry support team will be launching the clothes bank on 20 September and are appealing for as many donations as possible.
Katharine Rymell, senior support worker said: “There are lots of food banks in place but we wanted to tackle another issue people face when living with little to no money. As we come to the end of the summer it would be fantastic if people could donate some items if they are sorting out their wardrobes.
“All clothes are welcome – coats and warm clothing in particular - but please leave your undies out! We’ll be buying those new with cash donations.”
All donated items will be laundered and pressed and the team will accept both adult and children’s clothes with the aim of providing up to two full outfits for those in real need. As children return to school, the team is hoping to help provide school uniforms as well.
Bromford will collect from anywhere in the Daventry area or people can drop clothes into the Bromford support offices at the Abbey Information and Resource Centre in Daventry’s market square.
