Welcome

WERS is very grateful for all of the wonderful donations of clothing and household items that we receive from our supporters. Unfortunately (or fortunately!) we are currently full to capacity and have no more room to receive further donations. Therefore, if possible, we are kindly asking our supporters to hold on to donations until the new year. Many thanks.
We would still however be very grateful for items for our Christmas appeal at the moment as stated in our newsletter (toiletries, hats & scarves etc and chocolate).

‘The actions and support of WERS, through very difficult situations. And standing up for us. These are the things that really transform a person’s life.’
