The Citizens Advice Bureau Community Builders Trial and the Princes Trust ‘Winter Warmers’ Project Appeal.

The Citizens Advice Bureau Community Builders Trial and the Princes Trust ‘Winter Warmers’ Project Appeal.

This appeal is in aid of a community focused project providing vital additional assistance with fuel poverty to keep families, elderly and individuals on benefits, well and warm in the coming winter months. A temporary distribution point for FREE warm clothing has been created and this project will be an extension of the successful Citizens Advice Bureau initiative - ‘Warm Homes, Healthy People. The stock will be sourced through public appeal’s over the next few weeks, that is why your help is needed for donations of coats/hats and scarfs/wellies/sleeping bags/torches/school uniforms/ jumpers. Please can you take any donations to the Citizens Advice Bureau in Carnarvon Road. A ‘Pop up Shop’ has been set up based at 33 Pier Avenue (next to Mark and Spencer) to enact as the distribution point. The Princes Trust have provided the resource to source equipment, refurbish the premises and provide volunteers to man the shop. Volunteers are also needed to sort through donations and label and process garments.
