This program is not operating at the moment, but our hope is to re-connect with our partners in Bradford, Hull and Wakefield when that becomes possible.
Also we have a vacancy for a “Volunteer Donations Co-ordinator” if you have the skills and time please email [email protected]
Our clothing appeal has met with donations coming in from many parts of the city and surrounding rural areas.
We have been able to meet the current needs of the asylum seekers currently accommodated in York.
We have built up a reserve of items so that we can help to provide suitable clothing and footwear for arrivals in the New Year.
Though the majority of residents will be around for some to come, a small number of people leave and are replaced by new asylum seekers needing clothing. Thanks to your generosity, we shall assist with their needs.
It is not only the quantity of clothing which has been generous, it has been the quality. I have seen some amazing designer labels in the coats and jackets. For the moment, we have a full storehouse.
With grateful thanks to all contributors, we will stand down our collecting process for the moment.
