A Second Chance Offered by Shrewsbury Donation

On Friday 8th October, our wonderful community donated 28 boxes of clothing to Second Chance Bangkok - a fantastic outpouring of charitable donations that will help hundreds of people. Second Chance is a fantastic local charity initiative led by residents of Bangkok's largest slum - Klong Toey.

Second Chance Bangkok rely heavily on donations of quality second-hand goods and either sell them to residents of the Klong Toey community at affordable prices or pass them on to those who lack the resources to purchase these essential items themselves.

They also have an up-cycling element where they use materials from donations to make bags and gifts. These are then sold online and in their shop, creating both income and employment for local residents. If you would like to learn more about this fantastic organisation, you can find their details here.‚Äč

Shrewsbury Outreach, who led the drive, would also like to remind everyone that there is a permanent donations box in the staff room. If you ever have any items of good quality that you are considering throwing away, or would like to donate, feel free to leave them in there. Once full, Outreach will organise another collection.
