Stirling Times - - News - Bre­anna In­fer­rera

THE City of Stir­ling will host a char­ity cloth­ing drop-off day this Sat­ur­day to help sup­port lo­cal char­i­ties.

Last year’s event de­liv­ered promis­ing re­sults, with more than 14.8 tonnes of do­na­tions, in­clud­ing cloth­ing, tex­tiles, shoes, tow­els and bed­ding, col­lected on the day.

This year the City has part­nered with St Vin­cent de Paul, Good Sa­mar­i­tan In­dus­tries, Spine and Limb Foun­da­tion, Sal­va­tion Army and Angli­care.

Stir­ling Mayor Mark Ir­win said th­ese char­i­ties played an im­por­tant role in the lo­cal com­mu­nity by em­ploy­ing peo­ple with dis­abil­i­ties and as­sist­ing those in need.

“Apart from the ben­e­fits of re­cy­cling and di­vert­ing waste from land­fill, the event also pro­vides a con­ve­nient drop-off point for lo­cal res­i­dents and pro­motes the great work and ser­vices pro­vided by th­ese char­i­ties,” he said.

Col­lec­tions will take place from 9am to 3pm in the City’s ad­min­is­tra­tion cen­tre carpark.
