Last Tuesday (7th) saw the latest opening of the Clothing Bank. As it was the Easter holidays, we also had a selection of toys available that had been left over from the Christmas Clothing Bank. These were hugely popular with the youngsters who attended. Having said that, to the parents of the child who took home the recorder, we’re sorry!
It was not as busy as previous openings but there was still a steady stream of people through the doors. We were able to provide one of our homeless friends with a sleeping bag and children’s clothes were in demand this week.
A huge thank you to all who donated to us- whether it be time, clothes or toiletries. We could not do it without you. And finally, prom season is coming up. We appreciate that prom dresses are very expensive and girls may want to keep their prom dress forever but if anybody out there has a prom dress they would like to be relieved of, we would gladly take it off your hands. Teenage years are difficult at the best of times- raging hormones. doomed crushes and nobody understands ever (what do you mean- that was just me!) but every girl deserves a posh frock and a night out once in her life and to have to decline because she cannot afford the dress would be so sad.
Next opening 21st April, Brandon Welfare Hall, 12-2. We are expecting a visit from the MP for Durham.
