METHODIST ASYLUM PROJECT – MIDDLESBROUGH Thank you to all who gave items which were delivered to MAP in October by Paul George and myself. Paul had collected donations from The Bar Convent in York as well as those given to him by his sister. She organises a monthly Jumble Sale for Charities and Paul searches for items on the MAP ‘wanted’ list. We consulted the staff at MAP and it was suggested that comforting ‘soft toys’ would be a good idea. This enabled 3 young girls to accept delightful fluffy rabbits I suggest as well as usual warm clothes, trainers, kitchen equipment virtually new toys be given for delivery on Nov 29th. Items of toiletries and jewellery can be accepted as potential Gifts for Christmas. Thank you for your generosity... Please leave Items in OSH by Nov 28th.
