County Durham – Food and clothing appeal

A market place will be turned into a foodbank collection point next month (Friday, July 10).

The Unite Community will be holding a donation event for County Durham Foodbank and the County Durham Socialist Clothing Bank in Durham Market Place on Friday, July 10 – the day before Durham Miners’ Gala.

The move was inspired by an event in Glasgow following last year’s Scottish independence referendum, staged to highlight the impact of austerity cuts.

A Unite Community spokesman said: “On the Saturday, over 100,000 people will take part in Durham Miners’ Gala in a huge demonstration of solidarity.

“We are asking them to extend their solidarity by a day to help out those desperately struggling or unable to make ends meet.”

The collection will run from 10am to 3pm.
