We need your help!

Our 2018 Bendigo Community Coat Drive starts on May 7.

Please check your cupboards, draws and those boxes that have been sitting in the shed for ages to see if you have a jacket, jumper or blanket that hasn’t been worn in a while.

Our kind community donated more than 1700 items last year and every one was distributed to someone in need through Bendigo Community Health Services sites at central Bendigo, Eaglehawk and Kangaroo Flat.

We also provided coats to like-minded organisations such as Haven Home Safe to distribute to their clients.

This is your chance to help someone less fortunate keep warm through the winter months.

The Coat Drive runs from May 7 to June 2.

The amazing team at Pristine Dry Cleaners at Shop 141, 157-161 High Street in Bendigo have again volunteered to clean all the donated coats.

So, where do you drop off your coats between May 7 and June 2?
