Cindy Norcott, founder of The Robin Hood Foundation appealed to people to donate items such as clothing, linen, towels, accessories, handbags and shoes.

All donated pre-loved treasures will be used in The Robin Hood Foundation’s Gogo bags.

“A Gogo bag is a food hamper filled with non-perishable food items such as maize, samp, rice, soya mince, sugar, tea, canned items as well as blankets and your second-hand clothing,” explained Norcott.

Donations can be dropped off at any of the following drop off points:

CGA Agencies (Pinetown), Broadway Pharmacy (Durban North), Wool ‘n Weave (Lillies Quarter – Hillcrest), Dormehl (Gillitts), Washwell Laundry (Umhlanga).

“We welcome absolutely anything you are happy to part with that is small enough to fit into a bag and that is in good working condition. By sharing your pre-loved treasures you will literally be changing someone else’s life,” added Norcott.
