Current shortages

Donations are always welcome and our service relies on them. We accept donations of money, food, toiletries and some other goods listed below. Please see our donate page for more details on how to make a cash donation.

Due to the overwhelming response to our winter coat appeal we have now stopped taking in coats. We have a sufficient supply to meet the demand of our clients.

We have received a significant amount of bedding during the last two months and have no further storage available therefore we have also suspended bedding donations.
