Shower hours expand


THE free shower facility for the homeless on Playne Street is set to expand from one day of operation to three.

The showers opened late last year, and were available on Tuesdays for two hours from 12.30pm. The facility will now be open at the same time on Fridays and Sundays as well.

The facility is run by Donation Chain. They announced the expansion of their service on social media.

“Towels, bathmats, toiletries, new socks, underwear and seasonal fruit are all provided free of charge,” they said. “We currently have many brilliant volunteers that keep the showers going but we will be needing many more donations of socks/underwear to hand out. We ask please that smaller sizes are donated as many of our survivors are emaciated.”
