Donations of warm winter clothes sought by local authority

Dumfries and Galloway Council is looking for donations of any types of warm winter clothes no longer needed.

Jackets, jumpers, cardigans, hats, scarves, gloves, etc in any sizes are requested – both children and adults.

There are donations points throughout the region highlighted on the poster.

It’s an excellent excuse to clear out your cupboards and wardrobes knowing that everything that you will donate will be going to someone in need.
