Organise a clothing drive


Many organisations run a clothing drive on behalf of Smart Works Newcastle, which is an easy and fun way to secure a large number of clothing donations, and ensure that great quality clothing is put to the best possible use. If this sounds like something you’d like to do download our clothing drive pack here.
