“Gave me a warm feeling seeing his face light up”

This is Mark from Step Up at Wakefield Council. He collected a number of donations to give to a client and then sent us these kind words:
“I would just like to say a huge thank you to you and your team for the generous donation to my client. He was delighted!! I hadn’t told him about the microwave so that was a lovely surprise and he looked thrilled!

Its so heart warming that we can utilise a service like yours and the clothing bank for just those basic necessities to help someone get back on the track.

I’m sure I will no doubt call upon you again but really just wanted to pass on my thanks again. Gave me a warm feeling seeing his face light up!”

The team at the Community Give Box were delighted to receive this thanks as they are so proud to be able to use the preloved items so generously donated by our supporters, to such good use.

Helping to set up home!

The team at the Community Give Box gave Katy Hanmer from WDH a trolley full of items for a young woman who fled domestic violence with just a bag of clothes and nothing else. WDH have provided a flat and we have provided a range of items to make the flat a home!

Craft items donated to Horbury Bridge School

The retail team at the Community Give Box were delighted to donate a collection of craft goodies to Horbury Bridge School for the children to use at their after-school club. We also have a number of fancy dress outfits and plastic tableware to donate to the school.

Pictured receiving the donation are Mrs Denton and Hannah Denton who work at the school. They were thrilled with the craft items!

Unsung Heroes filming begins!

Filming the nominees for the #unsungheroesawards2021 has begun! It is so lovely to hear the different stories of each nominee and how they have given up their time to help others in their communities.  Thank you to Andy Green from Leagus Video for doing all the filming. We really appreciate your help!
