Update - extra drop-off points in Angus

Thank you to all who have donated to us already for the Winter Clothing project.

We now have extra drop-off points for your donations of children’s cosy coats and clothing. These are:

Beauty Retreat, 12- 14 Bank Street, Kirriemuir DD8 4BG.

Angus Creative Minds, 1 -3 St James Road (the old Voluntary Action Angus building), Forfar, DD8 2AQ.

The Angus Creative Minds office has staggered opening times, these are:
Monday 10am-2pm and 5.30-8pm;
Wednesday 10am-2pm and 5.30-8pm;
Thursday 10am-8pm
Saturday 12noon-8pm.

If you would like to donate any items, please do pop along to one of our drop-off points where they will be happily received.

We do already have some donations so if you are in need of warm children’s coats, you can now pop along to Angus Carers Centre between 10am and 12.30pm Mon-Fri (extra drop in on a Thursday 3pm-4.30pm) to see what is available. Please ask at reception when you arrive at the Centre.


In September 2019, we made several applications to a local initiative to help families in Angus ensure their children have a warm coat through the winter months. Unfortunately, the demand on the appeal this year was overwhelming and the majority of the applications submitted were unsuccessful.

So we are asking you…Can you help a family in need?
Do you have any children’s coats, hats, gloves, or winter boots - in ‘as good as new’ condition that you could donate to families in need this Winter?

We are collecting now so, if you can, please drop off any donations to Angus Carers Centre (Ground Floor) 8 Grant Road, Arbroath. If you would like to donate an item of child’s clothing but cannot get to Angus Carers Centre, please get in touch by calling 01241 439157 and we may be able to help.

Donated items will be available for Carers and Young Carers, registered with our service, to come and take a look at. The drop-in for this will be between 9.30am and 12.30pm Mon-Fri, with an extra drop-in session available on Tuesdays between 3pm and 4.30pm. These drop-in sessions will run until Friday 20 December 2019.

We will post updates about this project as soon as we have items available.

So, come on, you wonderful people! Help out local families and spread a little warmth this Winter.
