Sock it to Cardiff Bay Tavern

| by | News

The Red Dragon Centre will have a donation point to collect socks for the Huggard Centre in time for the cold weather.

The Huggard Centre reported that socks are the least donated yet most needed item at collection points for the homeless. Because of this Cardiff Bay Tavern in The Red Dragon Centre will be holding a donation point specifically for socks to be donated to The Huggard Centre to provide those in need.

Huggard is a charity and Wales’ leading centre for people who are sleeping rough and first opened in December 1988. Huggard run a day centre that is open 24/7 for anyone to get a hot drink, and a meal as well as being able to have a shower and do laundry or get a change of clothes. The centre work hard to not have to turn anyone away and have 18 single rooms and two double rooms available to use. Between January and March of this year on average 74 people used the centre every day and 246 people used their Emergency Overnight Accommodation.

The idea for the initiative came from Kate Scourfield, the General Manager of Cardiff Bay Tavern within the centre upon hearing how in need of socks homeless individuals were, especially during winter months as the weather gets colder and wetter. Staff from across The Red Dragon Centre will be encouraged to donate a pair of socks and the centre will be using the hashtag #sockittous to promote the donation point. Capital FM’s Josh and Kally will also be supporting the initiative from their base within the centre.

The donation point will be launched on October 10 which is also World Homeless Day and will run until after Christmas, giving those who receive unwanted socks as gifts the chance to donate them to the worthwhile cause.

The donation point will be located at Cardiff Bay Tavern inside The Red Dragon Centre and accepts clean unused socks.
