The temperature is dropping and the InterAction team have noticed that some of our more vulnerable beneficiaries are really feeling the cold. So we’re putting out a call for donations of warm clothing and blankets to give out at our drop-in over the winter months.
New or second-hand, clean and in good condition, we really appreciate any winter woolies you can spare as they’ll really make a difference.
InterAction Drop-in Manager Kate Townsend explained why it’s so urgent. “Asylum seekers receive only £39.63 per week to live on. Destitute asylum seekers receive nothing. Please help us to support our asylum-seeking clients with some warm clothes which they may not otherwise be able to afford for the cold northern winter.”
