SOUTH Downs Leisure is doing its bit for charity by donating old uniforms from over 350 staff members to Link to Hope.
Back in April, Worthing Leisure become a charitable leisure trust, changing its name to South Downs Leisure, which would have left all its old uniforms, including sportswear, fleeces and shirts, redundant.
The solution was to give them to people in need, with business development officer and new uniform coordinator Jenni Heirock organising the donation.
Managing director of Link to Hope, Worthing Lisa Hector said: “Link to Hope reaches out to those who need it most; children and adults from the poorest, most vulnerable and exploited areas of volatile, war-torn countries in Eastern Europe.
“Donations are lifelines for those struggling to cope without a home, education, in poor health and no basic human rights. That’s why we are so grateful to receive a large consignment like this from South Downs Leisure. People who are desperately in need will benefit greatly from warm clothing and other essentials.”
