This year, the Halswell Community Project have offered to
help out the New Brighton Project’s Blanket Bank. So far we have taken two carloads of bedding - including clean blankets, sheets and duvets and VERY clean pillows over to Brighton.
“With winter on its way, it’s time for us to stock up for
our busiest time of the year. We rely on donations of warm bedding e.g.
blankets (both woollen and acrylic), duvets, sheets, pillow cases and
duvet covers” says Sarah Mackay, the volunteer who runs the Bank. "Blankets are almost marching out the door at the moment".
If you would like to donate, please drop any warm, clean and good quality (something you would use yourself) bedding that you have to the Halswell Community Hub (381 Halswell Rd – parking off Sparks Rd) during office hours.
If you are unable to donate a blanket but would like to
help, then you could make a donation on their Give a Little Page.
