HHTC Launches its Winter Assistance Campaign with a Haywards Heath Coat Exchange

Published: 26 October 2022

Haywards Heath Town Council is kicking off its Winter Assistance Campaign with a Haywards Heath Coat Exchange at the Town Hall.

The Exchange means that anyone who has any coats that they no longer wear/need or fit can drop these off at Haywards Heath Town Council where the coats will be available for anyone who needs one, with no questions asked.

The project will be running throughout November, with coats available to collect from 1st November. Based on the success/need of the project, it will be revised on a monthly basis throughout the Winter period.

The project was the brain child of Haywards Heath Town Councillor, Rachel Cromie, who comments:

Please support this project as many people need a decent coat to keep them warm as the cold weather arrives. Coats should be clean, have a working zip or all its buttons and be ready to wear. Please do not donate dirty or damaged coats and give us only a coat you would be happy to wear yourself. We are accepting coats in any style and in any size from babies to adults. Please also note that this project is for COATS ONLY and NOT other clothing or shoes.

We will be announcing other initiatives as part of our Winter Assistance soon so watch this space.”

Coats may be delivered starting immediately to Haywards Heath Town Council at the Town Hall in Boltro Road. The Town Hall is open from 9am to 5pm Monday to Thursday and from 9am to 4pm on Fridays. If you wish to arrange a collection as you are unable to deliver, please contact rachel.cromie@haywardsheath.gov.uk.
