Warm Clothing Appeal
We're teaming up with the Manchester branch of Ready Steady Store (a UK self storage company) to launch a Warm Clothing appeal this winter. Ready Steady Store, based on Bury New Road, Manchester has generously donated the use of its facilities as a drop off point for our Warm Clothing appeal.
Throughout the winter months they will be accepting on our behalf
- new socks
- winter coats
- sleeping bags
This year has been particularly challenging - we have already seen an increase in the numbers of homeless and vulnerable people visiting our centre by 40%. This is largely due to the recession, but of course every case is different. The severity of the weather that we're experiencing makes the conditions even more life threatening to those who sleep rough on our streets. We want to be in a position to do everything we can to alleviate the distress and suffering of the homeless especially during these bitterly cold winter months.
It would be fantastic if you, the company you work for, group, school or church could help us by donating clothing. Any of the staff at Ready Steady Store in Manchester will gladly accept your donations on our behalf. Address and opening hours as follows:
- Mon to Sat 9.00am -5.30pm
- Sundays : Closed
Alternatively if you would like to make a donation or help us in any other way we would be very grateful of your help.
Bless you from all at Barnabus.
