Get It Out For Cardiff charity collections underway

The ‘When you clear out, donate it’ message is spreading across halls and the private rented sector with donations flooding into the green zones set up around the city.

The photos show the recent pick up of the food collection this week and donations to the green zones set up around halls around the city including Cardiff University, Liberty Living, Victoria Halls, Cardiff Students Union and UWIC

Food and bric-a-brac will be stored with Cardiff Self Storage and donated to FoodShare and RAG with clothing collected by Salvation Army and electrical items by British Heart Foundation
