Support updates and things we need

Many people needed extra help with food and rent this year, but the aim of the project is always on self sufficiency. Financial donations remain a priority. We continue to need clothes and welcome all donations, we will sort out and take to Ethiopia appropriate and required clothes. However we are now taking all surplus clothes to the many Clothes for Cash warehouses, here we can get 50 -60 pence per kilo, so all donations of clothes are welcome (from 2yrs to adults).
As well as clothes a few other items that we need: -
Football shirts are always welcome 
Laptops and mobile phones are a great help for the older students
Books – educational
DVDs both educational and for the young children
Sewing items – needles, tape measures and scissors
