Annual Spring Basket – An Appeal for Help

 

It is that time of year again when we appeal for donations of clothes household goods toys and games  for the annual “Spring Basket” held in conjunction with the Diocese Board for Church and Society HIV Support Group.

This event held every year is always very well received and enables those most vulnerable in our community to find items that they need for free in a safe and understanding environment.

In order to do this we need donations of new or nearly new household goods, clothes (for men women and children of all ages) toys and games (no electrical goods though please)

So if you are having a wardrobe update, or spring clean, moving home, or are a company with excess or unwanted stock we would welcome your donations of the above items which will help those living with HIV in Hertfordshire and Bedfordshire immensely. You can donate anytime as this is an annual event, however for this year we need more donations before 7th May please.

Please contact Iain on 01727 842532 or email info@thecrescent.org.uk if you are able to help.

For more info on the Spring Basket please see the flyer from the Diocese HIV Support Group >>Click Here for Flyer>> 

Thanks for your support and assistance as ever
