A very significant number of asylum seekers have been placed in the county by the Home Office in the past few weeks. Many of these are newly arrived in the country and there is an urgent need for clean, good quality male clothing and shoes.
GARAS has been working with local churches and now have a team of volunteers receiving and sorting donations
They are based at St Aldates Church, Gloucester, GL4 6TR (just off Finlay Road). They will be open Monday – Friday, 9am – 2pm.
People can drop off donations by parking at the church, following the signs through the main doors and into the main hall space and simply leaving them there.
If you are able to help to receive and sort the clothes, contact firstname.lastname@example.org and they can put you in touch with the organisers.
