Practical Donations Clothing


Any kind of clothing is most welcome. Warm clothing for giving to people who are rough sleeping or homeless is especially good. Any clothing that gets donated to The Wellspring that we cannot use is then sold on to raise funds for the Charity.


In-date tinned food and packages are always needed. The Wellspring runs a food service and serves around 100-150 meals per day to homeless and disadvantaged people. Fresh food and baked goods are also very welcome and much needed.
