This is a big shout out to Chris at Will Box Truro . The support and service they have offered my community group has been amazing . We are Cornwall Childrens Clothes Bank and we supply clothes and toys to families in need , free of charge . Chris has been an endless source of advice on my journey to securing a container and land on which to site it , quite a saga when you are a cash free group ! But we got there in the end . We now have an amazing container which is filling up already . Thanks to everyone at Willbox, hundreds more families in Cornwall can benefit . I have photos if you need them ! Thanks again .
