Donations can be dropped off locally at the Newport Enterprise Centre, 10a High Street, TF10 7AN Monday to Friday 9am – 5pm.
They are especially in need of the following:
Warm clothing, gloves, hats and socks (not wool due to wet weather)

Please note that organisers have asked that all donations should be new due to the logistics of sorting clothing and bedding supplies before transit.
