Dorset Council is asking residents to donate clean and undamaged children’s coats, hats, and gloves for those aged 0-16. This heartfelt initiative aims to ensure that no child goes without essential winter clothing during these challenging times. The council recognises the importance of addressing this issue and is calling on the community to join forces in helping those who are struggling.
Families who need items are able to collect them from centres in Blandford and Shaftesbury.
Collections and donations can be made at Blandford’s and Shaftesbury’s children’s centres, Monday to Friday, between 09:30 and 16:00pm
