This is a message from DASH
Dear Friends and Supporters
I hope you’re keeping well and warm. I’m writing to let you know about DASH’s winter appeal. Our clients need winter clothes. It’s been much harder to distribute donated goods since our drop-ins had to be suspended. Whilst most of our service has continued remotely, the clothing donations stopped. But we’ve found a solution…
This innovative new scheme will benefit our clients by enabling them (from 2nd December or when rules permit) to shop for their own clothes – giving them choice, dignity and the opportunity to integrate.
An added bonus to this appeal is that a single donation will end up benefitting two local charities – DASH and Kirkwood Hospice. The latter does excellent work caring for those with life-limiting illnesses.
The triple bonus is that the wonderful folk at One Community Kirklees have pledged to match all money raised by this appeal, pound for pound, making each donation Thrice As Nice!
Our target is £1500, which One Community would take to £3000. This would buy a substantial amount of vouchers for individuals and families living in financial hardship.
