Total underwear collected is 1,089,963
The underwear totals for collected and distributed remain the same this month. We’ve been working hard to get everything organised in our new premises and to get back to business as usual. Our focus has been on opening donations received in May – if you remember, we received a phenomenal 9,604 parcels in May. I’m happy to let you know we’ve now managed to open just over half of them thanks to our hard-working and dedicated sorting volunteers. They are truly amazing and for the next 4-6 weeks we’re doubling our sorting days as we’re really keen to catch up. If you’re local to West Lothian and have a few hours to spare, you’re more than welcome to join us. It’s amazing what a couple of hours can do, and you’d be made to feel very welcome – we provide tea/coffee and biscuits! Just email me, firstname.lastname@example.org
The address for donations remains the same for the moment: 108 Buchanan Crescent, Eliburn, Livingston, EH54 7EF. Please remember to pop a note of your email address in with your donation if you’d like us to let you know when it’s been processed, and thanks in advance for your patience in receiving an acknowledgement.
A big thank you to everyone who has donated to our premises appeal – we really appreciate your support. If you’d like to contribute to our special appeal to help raise the £19,000 we need to cover rent, rates and other associated premises costs for a year, and pay for the loss of the generator that was stolen in the break-in, please give to this Wonderful page: http://bit.ly/premisesappeal and Smalls will receive 100% of your donation. Every penny matters. We need to raise this money to ensure we can continue to function and grow in the future, so that we can go on helping more people in need – in both Africa and (from 1 August) the UK.
