SMALLS FOR ALL
A BIG THANKS FOR THE PANTS!
The URC Heckmondwike have been collecting girls and women’s underwear for SMALLS FOR ALL
Smalls for All is a charity which helps women and children in Africa meet their most basic hygiene and security needs.
Since November 2015 around 435 girl’s and women’s pants and 130 bras have been collected and sent to the charity.
This is a great result and what we have done is important because many women and children in Africa can't afford underwear. Because of that, they fall victim to disease and attack. Girls who are lucky enough to have a place in school often miss 3 or 4 days a month due their lack of underwear.
Since the Charity started, Smalls for All has collected 232,258 items of underwear and distributed 156,103 and recycled 34,000 bras. (Pantometer reading - as at 20.04.2016).
A very big thank you from the URC Heckmondwike for collecting and contributing to this great total.
The Smalls for All Collection Box is no longer in Church, but if you still want to help you can send new girls and women’s pants and lightly used bras direct to the charity at:
