It’s The Kindness Market this Friday night and we’ll be collecting donations for Mustard Tree, a charity which works hard to support people in homelessness and poverty in Manchester.

See below for the list of items we’re looking to collect. There is also, as the chilly winter weather rolls in, a particular need for new/unused underwear (particularly men’s) and sleeping bags at the moment, so if you’ve been having some doubts about those supermarket undies you’ve bought your dad this Christmas, now’s the time to come down to the market so you can splash out on something else while putting those pants to good use.
