Removal of Clothing Bank Coity Higher Community Centre Car Park

By // October 5th, 2020

The SSAFA armed forces charity clothing bank located at Coity Higher Community Centre car park has been a great resource and has raised several thousand pounds for the charity, which helps local veterans.    It has provided funds for mobility scooters, stair lifts and training for volunteer case workers.

However despite this being just a clothing bin, people have been fly tipping other non-clothing items around its base, which cannot be taken away by the clothing bank company and this has become a problem.   Awen Cultural Services has arranged for the non-clothing items to be removed twice in as many weeks; this cost is not sustainable.  It is with great regret that the decision has been made to remove the bin in the coming weeks.
