A small gesture

Friday, December 12th, 2014

This year Cool Designs are donating a small number of toys to two very important local charities.  Living Waters & South Tyneside Women’s Aid.  Both of these places have a number of children who more than deserve a little extra this Christmas. What we are doing isn’t much, in fact as we have spoke to each, we wish we could do a whole lot more.  But we would like to send our warmest thanks to the Ethical Superstore  who have been helpful and generous in our first year of doing this, allowing us to reach more children than we originally estimated.

We’ll be delivering these gifts to the children over the next couple of weeks but for now we need to get wrapping!

Winter Clothing Away!

Friday, December 12th, 2014

It’s been a busy time over the last few weeks and during this time we’ve been a collection point for the Winter Coat Amnesty.  As we’ve felt the bitter cold of late it’s made many of us think of those in the unfortunate circumstance where they need the vital donations such as these to help them through the winter.  We really would like to thank everyone who has dropped in even a single item as every one of  these will be distributed by the people at Crisis.
