Good & New - We are collecting clothes now!
The Good and New Sale is back! Sponsored by Hegarty Solicitors, the sale is getting bigger and better year on year!
We have now started to collect clothes and accessories for the Good and New Sale 2020, so please help us and drop off any new / nearly new, good quality clothes and accessories to one of our drop off points including:
Oakham - John Porter Dry Cleaning and Cavells
Uppingham - Costa Coffee
Stamford - Gerard Hair & Beauty at The George Mews
Everyone has some once worn items in their wardrobe, slightly too big or too small or maybe just not quite the right colour. We collect clothes for all ages, from designer to high street, indoor and outdoor, smart or casual.
All proceeds of the sale are used to pay for Specialist Advisers based at Citizens Advise Rutland, who provide non- medical support to people suffering with long term health conditions in Rutland and the surrounding community. Thanks to the skills of our trained advisers, every £1 donated to this service results in £5 raised from grants and government funding for people in Rutland at some of the most difficult times in their lives. So please dig deep into your wardrobe and keep the clothes coming to help people in your own community!
For more information, please contact Trish, , Tel 07801 319222
The 'For Rutland' Specialist Advisers have acquired over £4. Mill. in grants and benefits to support Clients in Rutland!
In the past quarter our Specialist Advisers have been able to secure £348,329 from suitable grants and benefits for clients. This means that since 'For Rutland' started just over 4 1/2 years ago, the Specialist Advisers have gained over £4.1 million for clients suffering with long term health conditions in Rutland and the surrounding community. This funding can make all the difference to clients, especially when they are just trying to come to terms with their health. Our key objective is to ensure that clients' quality of life is protected wherever possible. It is amazing to see what a positive difference the Specialist Advisers make each day!
