CAPTAINS CHARITY WEEKEND 21-23 JULY 2023
The Cowshed is a charity providing support to people of all backgrounds in a time of personal crisis. We have also helped over 1,000 Ukranian Refugees in the last year. We provide good quality cleaned and ironed clothes, bedding ,toiletries and other essentials free to anyone in need. The clothes are donated from the public as well as retailers and manufacturers. They are then sorted, washed and ironed at our donation centre at
UNIT 2 BENNET COURT, BENNET ROAD< READING RG2 0QX ( open Mon- Thurs 10-3 and Sat 10-1pm) and delivered to our referrers such as social services, schools ,refuges , churches , health professionals and other charities. The idea is that our clients feel they are receiving a gift in a time of crisis.
The Cowshed has a three- way impact : helping those most in need in our communities, recycling used clothing and creating community groups.
Alongside the main work we run several other projects including:
CHRISTMAS PRESENT APPEAL, PROM AT THE COWSHED, BRAS AT THE COWSHED, WELCOME TO THE WORLD PROJECT, NOAH BOX PROJECT, LITTLE BLACK DRESS SHOP and CRAFT AT THE COWSHED.
