We want to say a huge thank you to our community for the overwhelming and generous response we’ve had to our psychiatry WardRobe project.
Update: We'd like to extend a huge thank you to everyone who reached out, donated and supported our Psychiatry WardRobe project. We've received overwhelming support from our community and staff have been busy sorting clothing donations which will well and truly see us through the coming months. For now, we are unable to accept any further donations - but as the WardRobe is a permanent feature in our unit, we will post an update as soon as we have capacity to accept more donations of your pre-loved clothing.
Due to current restrictions, we are currently only accept donations via the donation bin located in the reception of our psychiatry unit.
We are unable to accept postage of donations, and do not have alternate donation drop off points at this time. If you are outside the 5km zone or cannot get to us please note will be accepting donations to the WardRobe project ongoing and would love to accept these in the future.
