Update March 2018

Written by MB

* We have a new premises at last thanks to the Goodwin Trust! We are now settling into the Avenues Community Centre, Park Avenue, HU5 4DA and sorting regularly again, so more donations would be very welcome! Pick ups can be arranged, or they can be dropped off during our sorting times. As usual, small & medium men's clothes and boots are most in need, as well as sleeping bags and camping equipment, food, toiletries, etc, but we can make use of most everything by selling unneeded items at our car boots (which will be starting up again soon). Our new sorting times are Monday 9.30 - 11.30 am, Saturday 10 am - 12 pm, and Thursday evenings 6.30 - 8.30 pm. If you haven't been before do let us know you are coming - we don't have signs up yet and the doors are usually locked at present. We hope to be sending off donations regularly, as we have less space to store things now (though it is much warmer than Kingston!!)

* Volunteers Juliet and John went to Calais again in February to work with “Auberge Des Migrants”. Juliet has written a report of their stay

* On Tuesday April 17th we are holding a fashion show to raise money. The show starts at 7pm, at Jubilee Church Hall, 62 Edward Street. Tickets are a mere £2 on the door, and there will be refreshments available.
