A Spalding couple behind a project that gives children’s clothing to needy families is looking for a base to store donations from the public.
Mark and Sarah Le Sage launched Ella’s Project, named after their daughter (two), earlier this year for parents who wish to give their children’s unwanted clothes to others less fortunate than themselves.
There’s been quite a demand for our services and so we’re trying to find a short-term storage space where we can put donationsMark Le Sage of Ella’s Project
Collection points have been set up across South Holland for donations of clothes suitable for children aged five and under.
Mark said: “The project was set up when Sarah and myself were struggling to find a use for clothes hardly worn by our daughter.
“We collect quality children’s clothing from various donation points in the area and give them to various charities for people in need of some extra support.
“There’s been quite a demand for our services and so now we’re trying to find a short-term storage space that is dry and clean where we can put the bags of donations.”
Ella’s Project is linked with Mark’s charity, The Rightside Trust, which helps young people at risk of falling into crime.
Mark said: “We are extremely grateful for all the support we have received from the public and donation centres in the community.”
Anyone who can offer storage space for donations should call Mark on 07961 521727 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
