WE HAVE launched a campaign called Keep Stockton Warm that aims to keep those in need warm during the winter months.
We have partnered with local charity ‘A Way Out’ and are asking everyone to help look after those in need in the Teesside community by sharing their unwanted winter clothing.
January is a great time to have a clear out, especially while in lockdown, to make room for the new coats and winter accessories that you received as Christmas gifts, so it is the perfect time to support this initiative.
There are many people in the Teesside community that could benefit from a new coat, hat or scarf in these colder months, so any unwanted items would be much appreciated.
The donated clothing will then be sorted, in a COVID safe environment, by volunteers from the A Way Out team and then passed on to those in need.
A Way Out is an outreach and prevention charity which supports women, families and young people to live lives free from harm, abuse and exploitation. Many of their clients will really benefit from this support.
Items can be donated at the donation station in Castlegate shopping centre, located outside B&M.
Items should only be dropped off when visiting the centre for essential shopping, special visits to drop off items are not encouraged.

If you do not have any clothing to donate, then you can still support the initiative by making a donation to buy a hot chocolate for someone to keep them warm. Donations can be made by CLICKING HERE.
