Black Country Foodbank has launched a new clothing project to help local people.
Called Lydia’s House, the aim of the project is to prevent local people in need from having to choose between buying clothes and other basic living essentials.
How it works:
The plan is that project will run in the same way as the main Foodbank project where people will be issued vouchers by local agencies and will be able to exchange these for three outfits per person.
Anna-Christine, a volunteer at Foodbank, who will be running the project says: “I’m really excited about Lydia’s House. It’s another important way we can help local people in need.”
We’ve recently purchased a second-hand six head embroidery machine (that’s Lydia) which will be used to rebrand donated clothes as well provide cost-effective embroidery services to other local organisations and businesses.
If you have any clothes or shoes you would like to donate or are a local organisation that would like some clothing branded please call us on
