A CLOTHING collection will be held at Crediton Congregational Church on Saturday, December 2, from 9.30am to 12 noon.

The collection is being organised by Welcoming Refugees in Crediton (WRC).  WRC is a non-religious local volunteer group that supports refugees to settle into the Crediton community and that advocates for refugee issues more widely. 

Items needed for refugees overseas:

• Men’s comfy practical clothes are especially needed

• Winter coats and waterproof trousers, especially for children

• Phones and tablets in working order

• Toiletries - soap, toothpaste, sanitary and incontinence products.

All items donated will be taken directly to Refugee Aid in Taunton, a charity that keeps abreast of current needs in refugee settlements and sends donated items to where they are most needed.

Financial donations can also be passed on to “Refugee Aid from Taunton”.

WRC welcomes interest and input from new volunteers. 

For more information about the group please contact Anthea Duquemin at: [email protected]  or go along to the clothing collection.
