Our friends continue to be most grateful for donations sent from here for the benefit of the community in Brinnington and the homeless friends at Barnabus. Currently, because of continuing Coronavirus safety precautions, our donations to both destinations are somewhat restricted.
The Brinnington Parish Centre normally accepts donations for outreach purposes through their Drop-In sales and coffee mornings for the benefit of people in their community struggling with financial and other problems. For safety reasons the Parish Centre is closed for the foreseeable future and they have no storage space for donations. We have been unable to deliver your donations to them for over a year now. With permission of the Centre Manager, we continue to slowly re-distribute some of the items, particularly clean unmarked adult clothing, to other charities through the doorstep bag system until we can safely deliver to Brinnington once more. We have a large quantity of bric-a-brac including kitchen items stored safely to take to them as and when they can accept it.
We continue to be most grateful to Steve Best of Holmes Chapel Methodist Church for collecting donations for Barnabus from here, as and when it is safe to do so. We are advised that donations for Barnabus, including clothing and shoes, should be either new or as clean as possible, free of any marks or stains. If you wish to donate any clothing which can only be dry cleaned, please kindly have this done before donating it to us.
Thank you all for your generosity towards our friends in need.
