We are collecting warm clothes and bedding to distribute to the homeless as the freezing temperatures set in.  All of the Peter Alan Estate Agents’ branches across south Wales are accepting donations over the next few weeks.

As part of an initiative alongside Bigmoose – a not-for-profit organisation which aims to inspire people to live better lives – the donations will be distributed to those living on the streets across south Wales.

Andrew Barry, Peter Alan Managing Director, said:  “It’s very cold out there at the moment and it’s horrible for people to be sleeping outside in this weather so we decided to get involved.

“With your help and in connection with Bigmoose we can provide the homeless with warm clothing and better protection from the harsh conditions.”

“There will be a box at each branch across south Wales and people can bring warm clothes and bedding to any branch.

“Bigmoose distributes items to the homeless every week and some of our staff will be involved in distributing the donations as well.

“As an estate agent it’s nice to be able to help the homeless and it’s a really good cause.”
All our branches along with Bigmoose will now be accepting clothing and warm bedding donations

Items which can be donated include warm clothes for men and women, hats, scarves, gloves, socks as well as sleeping bags, blankets, and any protection from the cold weather.
Andrew finished, “Linking up with the great work Bigmoose carry out, we are taking part in the Grab Your Coat project and currently are taking donations of warm clothing, sleeping bags and shoes across all 28 of our branches.

“I am delighted that we’ve already received numerous donations to this project in the last 48 hours alone and I look forward to seeing this worthwhile project go from strength to strength”
