Clothes and Fabrics Collection

Once again, the Cathedral is taking up the opportunity of helping parishioners and friends to help themselves, and to help us, by providing a means of getting rid of old/used clothes and shoes.

The right hand Garage in the Clayton Hall Yard will be used as a collection point for bags of the following items to be left in the week commencing 23rd September until 23d October.

Please make sure the clothes have been cleaned beforehand.

WHAT CAN I PUT IN BAGS?

We can say YES to

Women’s Clean Clothing
Children’s Clean Clothing
Paired shoes, Handbags, Belts

but we must say NO to:

Cathedral Lapel Badges

 

The Select Vestry have conceived of a fundraising idea for Parish funds which is also a great way of showing support for the Cathedral – Lapel Badges. Each badge bears the crest of Dromore and is priced at the modest amount of £3.50. Anyone wishing to purchase a badge should place their name on the list in the Church Porch or contact the Church office.

Badges which have already been ordered can be collected at the Church Porch this Sunday. Thank you.
