On Saturday I spent a couple of hours at Inspired Sisters in Longsight – an amazing organisation, have a look around the website if you don’t already know of it – where they were collecting clothes and blankets to send to survivors of the floods in Pakistan.
When I turned up I was impressed by the number of donations already made: but that was nothing. People were turning up with cars full of bulging bin-bags – even a couple of loaded vans. Fantastic generosity.
I think Inspired Sisters have finished collecting for now, but if you want to support the relief effort in Pakistan you can donate to the British Red Cross here. You can also donate goods to a Red Cross charity shop and specify that you want the proceeds to go to the Pakistan appeal.
