County Durham Socialist Clothing Bank

Durham Community Support Centre

The last Clothing Bank of 2014 took place on December 9th at Brandon Miners Welfare Hall. The organisers decided that as it was the closest one to Christmas there would be toys and selection boxes available.  Once again the local community overwhelmed us with their generosity.  Donations of toys and selection boxes poured in, as well as clothes and toiletries.

Donations included a selection of hand knitted baby clothes, hand knitted dog coats and a king sized duvet.

The Clothing Bank was busy, the organisers estimate that over 150 bags of items were distributed. Amongst others, we helped: a young expectant mother, a homeless  man, a man who had just moved into a new flat who had nothing- he took the duvet,  a young man living in a hostel who needed something to wear at a wedding (he took away a very smart jacket) and a lady with six children.
