New Clothing Venue

All change at the Clothes Bank!

We’re excited to announce that as from Wednesday 7th June 2017, the SCM Basics Bank Clothes Bank venue will be hosted by Ascension Church, Bitterne Park.

We are really looking forward to working with Ascension Church to continue providing this vital community project in Southampton. The church has a super building located conveniently for bus routes, fully accessible to those with impaired mobility, with parking and a great café on site.  It’s also just a short walk from Southampton Vineyard’s Old Chemist in Bitterne Triangle which hosts the food bank on Wednesdays so clients will still be able to conveniently access food and clothing on the same day.

Near First Direct route 7 and Unilink route U9

End of an era…

Our last day at our current clothing venue at Central Hall will be Monday 22nd May. We’d like to take this opportunity to thank our friends at New Community Church for faithfully hosting the clothes bank for the last 8 years. As they embark on a new venture providing a temporary home for Hope Community School from September 2017, we pray they will be blessed as they serve the City in this new way.

Please could we ask that clothing donations are no longer taken to Central Hall. If you would like to donate clothes between now and 7th June, you are welcome to drop them at our warehouse in Millbrook – please call the office first to check opening times (023 8055 0435).
