Fire family needs clothes, shoes & accommodation
On Tuesday 25th October, a Mother and her 3 daughters lost their home and nearly everything they owned in a house fire on Vicarage Road, WednesfieldÂ and we are hoping our community can help them out.
Kim Manley and her girls aged 15, 13 and 7 are in need of both clothes, shoes and accommodation. They need among other things clothes, including size 12 (adults), girls age 16, girls age 13-14, girls age 7 and shoes sized 5, 3 and children’s 13. If you have any of the following items that you can donate, please get in touch or drop them off at St Thomas’ Church in Wednesfield.
Donation drop off point
St Thomas’ Church in Wednesfield has kindly offered to put a donation box in the Church, this is open for visitors on Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday and Saturday mornings (10 am – 12 noon) with coffee served on Wednesday, Friday and Saturdays. There will be a large box at the back of church, just by where you come in which is Â marked ‘House Fire donations’ and will be there from Thursday 27th.
We’ve already had a fantastic response from the community on our Facebook pageÂ and would like to extend our thanks to everyone that has already been in touch – however if you feel you can help or have something to donate, please do!
The family are currently looking forÂ accommodation – if you or someone you know has a property in the Wednesfield area available to rent and are able to help please email us on firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll pass your details on. We will also offer one month’s free advertising on the website, including a plug on our Facebook page and Twitter feed to any landlord that can waive the deposit Â for this family!
The offer of free advertising has been matched by theÂ Tettenhall Village website,Â so that’s free advertising on both websites and associated social media platforms if you’re a landlord that waives your deposit fees (web traffic stats available on request).
An update and thanks!
Thanks to theÂ generosity of local people St Thomas’sÂ ChurchÂ were overwhelmed withÂ Â donations for Kim and the girls, within 48 hours there were over a dozen black bags and boxes full of the things the family need, all from complete strangers. Who says community spirit is dead?!
Kim had this to say: “I am overwhelmed by everything that has been donated over the last 24 hrs or so.Â I would just like to say a great big thank you to all of you for your support.”
