For the last 14 years, a container lorry has taken items donated by people in Birmingham from here to Malawi.
This year the lorry is to be loaded on Saturday 18th May.
The address for loading will be Rye Farm, Wishaw, Sutton Coldfield West Mids. B76 9QA. Full instructions for accessing the farm are below. Google Map link
People in Malawi value many items being sent, including children`s clothing and shoes (and sometimes adult clothing and shoes also), any books written in English, stationery, basic first aid, materials, sewing machines, footballs and simple children`s games/toys, lap tops and sturdy bicycles. To avoid attracting customs` duties, however, most of these items should be second hand.
To send the lorry, the cost to Birmingham Diocese will work out at approximately £6 per cubic foot. Any contributions towards this cost from those sending items or from any others will be gratefully appreciated. If individuals wish not only to donate but also to gift aid their donation, better still! People will be able to make contributions on 18th May itself (and also to sign gift aid forms) but can also make them by contacting Sonia Hudson (firstname.lastname@example.org) at 1 Colmore Row
