National charity Barnardo’s is inviting local residents to take part in a ‘coat exchange’ to help raise money for disadvantaged children.
The Share the Warmth campaign encourages shoppers to donate a pre-loved coat to their Barnardo’s store at 23, Queen’s Road, Hastings until Saturday December 24. In return they will receive a £10 off voucher to spend on a new season wardrobe at Evans, in-store or online.
Coats received by Barnardo’s will be re-sold or recycled to raise vital funds to help support vulnerable children, young people and families.
Barnardo’s Chief Executive, Javed Khan says the ‘Coat Exchange’ is a fantastic initiative. “We’re excited to be working with Evans,” he said. “This opportunity will not only reward those who generously support Barnardo’s, but help vulnerable children such as those at risk of sexual exploitation and living in care.”
