In recent weeks, Dorset Council Children’s Centres in Blandford and Shaftesbury have been asking the public to donate coats for children aged 0 – 16 to support families in the area struggling with the cost of living.
The council says there has been a ‘fantastic’ response to the appeal and thanks to the Dorset public’s donations both Children’s Centres say they now have a great range of good quality free coats and jackets available for parents and carers to choose from.
If anyone would like to see what’s available, try on for size and take home, just drop in on Tuesday – term time only – at the following locations/times:
Blandford Children’s Centre, Black Lane, DT11 8SW
Between 8.30am and midday
Shaftesbury Children’s Centre, Wincombe Lane, SP7 8PZ
Between 9am and 4pm.
