Chair of Communities Committee, Ian Blake said: “Our Council is committed to tackling poverty and inequalities throughout our region. We know that a lot of people are struggling, and these events are aimed at helping those in need. There are no qualifying criteria, so anyone who needs some warm winter clothes can come along to one of our events and get what they need to help them stay warm this winter.”
Vice Chair of Communities Committee Jackie McCamon said: “We have been overwhelmed at people’s generosity this year in donating items of clothing that has allowed us to increase the number of events we are holding to ensure free warm winter clothes are available across the region. There will also be free period products available at each event – again with no qualifying criteria. So please come along to one of our events and help yourself to some new and pre-loved warm winter clothes.”
