The generosity of our local supporters is a constant source of inspiration here at IWA and we are always hugely grateful for the donations made by members of the community.
From now on however, we will no longer be able to accept second hand clothing or toys. Instead we’d love to receive new, nearly new, unworn or tagged items of clothing. We’ve all made those impulse purchases and left them unworn in back of the wardrobe … so why not donate them to us! Call Elaine or Amy on 01463 220719 to arrange a donation.
