Thank you from the OSA

Update on donations to the Friary

11 December 2017

Notts County's Official Supporters Association have thanked fans for supporting their clothing appeal in aid of local homeless charity the Friary.

The OSA have been able to make two significant donations to the charity thanks to the generosity of supporters.

And they are still accepting clothing at their office next to Football in the Community on matchdays.

Supporters who cannot drop off items at the OSA office on a matchday can leave clearly-marked bags or boxes of goods for the attention of Sarah Gooding.

Socks, gloves, scarves, trainers, hats and blankets are in particularly high demand.

The Friary is a drop-in centre which seeks to help homeless and unemployed people in the city centre and Rushcliffe area of Nottingham.

They give advice on issues around housing, debt and benefits, while also providing food parcels, bedding, clothing, showers, laundry and barbering to those who need it.

There is also a homeless health team, including a GP and nurses, who offer support around substance misuse as well as a range of tests for differing forms of hepatitis. Other services provided include dentistry, optometry and chiropody.
