Keeping Guildford Warm

What's On — Keeping Guildford Warm

 

Help us to share the warmth this winter.

As the increased cost of living and energy crisis is affecting many people this winter, we are proud to have teamed up with Guildford Action to help the community to wrap up warm.

The ‘Keep Guildford Warm’ clothes bank, has been set up to help make a positive difference to those who need it.

We are kindly asking the community to help us by donating pre-loved winter clothes (for all genders and ages) which can be dropped off at the management office, located on level 1 before Monday 28th November.

Examples of the items that could be donated:

  • Coats
  • Jumpers
  • Scarves
  • Gloves
  • Hats
  • Blankets

Donated items will be sorted and displayed in the ‘Keep Guildford Warm’ shop for local people in need to visit on selected dates in December. It will be presented just like a store but with no price tags!

The opening dates are still to be confirmed, so be sure to keep an eye out for them here and on our social media channels.

We have partnered with Guildford Action, who provide a safe, non-judgmental refuge for people who’ve fallen through the net, or out of everyday society.
