Queens Award

Practical Items

 
If you'd like to donate gifts for Christmas, please note that we're not giving away shoeboxes this year. Instead, we’re focussing on giving good quality presents that will help someone at Christmas and beyond. We've got very limited storage space, so please only donate items from the list below:
 
Clothing
Men's boxer shorts (S, M, L)
Men's and women's gloves
Men's warm hats*
Women's leggings (all sizes)
 
Other items
Sleeping bags
Rucksacks
Thermos flasks
Microwavable hot water bottles (the kind that keep you warm at night, rather than drinking vessels)
Ear plugs
Umbrellas
 
*As thoughtful as they are, unfortunately we can’t accept hand-knitted items as they tend to let in the cold. 
 

As usual, we're accepting food donations for the Wild Goose drop-in centre.
