Have you got an unwanted coat? It’s now easy to pass it on to someone in need, thanks to the ‘Wrap Up Farnham’ initiative just launched by Farnham Maltings.
The idea is to gather unwanted or unused coats and distribute them to those most in need.
There will be a drop-off point for donated coats at the Maltings from Wednesday, November 25 to Friday, November 27, 10am-4pm, after which volunteers will check the quality before placing them in quarantine.
- be warm and good quality (no light summer jackets)
- be fully cleaned
- have all their buttons or a working zipper
- be something that someone would want to wear
The Maltings has linked up with a number of charities who will collect the coats and distribute them among those in need, including families, older people, those sheltering from domestic abuse and those who are homeless.
If you are a charity who would like to receive coats to pass onto someone in need then please get in touch with Erin Beesley: firstname.lastname@example.org at the Maltings.
