Homeless clothing drive success

29 December 2015

A winter clothes collection drive in Grangetown for Cardiff’s homeless saw dozens of bags donated.

The Clothes Drive project was run by Grangetown Community Action from November into December.

A fantastic 51 bags of clothes ranging from hats and scarves, to jeans and jumpers was collected and donated to The Salvation Army’s Bus Project which offers support to the homeless within the city centre.

All items donated will be distributed by the staff and volunteers at the project and will help to keep those in need warm for the rest of the winter months.

“I’d like to thank all those who donated clothing to the cause, as well as the residents, Fr David Morris and local police officers who helped to sort and deliver the clothing at the end of the drive,” said Ashley Lister, secretary of Grangetown Community Action.

“I’d also like to extend my thanks to Cardiff Council’s Neighbourhood Partnership Team, staff at Channel View Leisure Centre, Cardiff Youth Offending Service and The Buzz Information Shop for their support by acting as drop-off points.”
