The Clothing Bank opened its doors today at Brandon Miners Welfare Hall from 12 until 2. As always we have been overwhelmed by the kindness of people who donate clothes, toiletries, their time and, in the case of the GMB Tyne and Wear branch, a £25 cheque. Thank you all.
The Clothing Bank was busy for the two hours it was open. We were pleased to welcome colleagues from Destiny Streetworx who feed up to 150 homeless people every Saturday at Pilgrim Street, Newcastle. They also offer a freshly prepared hot meal and drinks and provide a Food Bank for those in need. We were happy to help them with clothes and toiletries to take back to their street friends (check out their facebook page for more information)
