Europa supports clothes for Africa effort

[ April 2, 2019   //   ]

Europa Warehouse is helping to boost a clothing for Africa collection scheme by one of its employees in Northampton.

Warehouse operative James Brown regularly travels to the villages of Mwkamba and Tiwi in Mombasa, Kenya with his wife Michelle and parents-in-law taking donated clothes and other essential items for families in need.

Now, his clothing collection is being boosted by colleagues at Europa and the firm is launching a pilot clothing collection across two Europa Warehouse divisions in Birmingham and Northampton.

James Brown says: “Any clothes we collect, we take to the two villages.  This ranges from reasonably smart clothes for going to work/ interviews (particularly important now tourism has dropped), to children’s clothes and football kits.  Anything is welcome.” Hard wearing clothes and shoes are particularly useful, he adds.
