“We are very grateful to continue to receive donated goods from the local community, which our service users can make use of. However, due to limited storage space, at times we may not be able find appropriate use for items, and in these instances, may either donate to other charitable causes or sell items in order to raise money to buy other items more in need.
We call this our Emergency Clothing Fund.”
