Please remember that items given to the homeless should be wherever possible lightweight as storage is obviously an issue. Jumpers etc should be thin and lightweight as being able to dry thicker clothes is extremely hard.
Do not donate the following due to limited storage available:
- Duvets, pillows, curtains, electric items, dresses, cutlery, crockery, handbags
- That donated clothes should be on the smaller size rather than XL
- Travel size toiletries are much easier to carry
- That items given to the homeless should be wherever possible lightweight as storage is an issue and drying thicker clothes is extremely hard
