Unite Community in Durham are inviting everyone to come to the Durham Market Square on Friday 10th July and drop their clothes…and food as well, as the Market Square is turned into a collection point for the County Durham Socialist Clothing Bank and local food banks.
On the 10th of July – the day before the Durham Miner’s Gala – we will be asking for an extra day of solidarity, in support of those bearing the heaviest burden of tory austerity.
It is shocking that tens of thousands of families in as rich a nation as the UK can’t afford food, clothing and toiletries. Whilst we campaign to change that, we should also do what we can to help those suffering in the meantime.
We will be in the Market Square from 10:00 until 3:00 on Friday 10th July. If you are able to stop by and give us something from the list that would be great. If you are able to do a bit more, try and set up a collection in your own workplace and we will arrange for it to be collected at the end of the day. A poster and flyer are available to download below.
If you want to arrange a workplace collection or have any questions e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org or phone Robbie Faulds on 07532 083108
