Packing for Romania

~ The packing team in Horley normally meets from 1:30 to 3:30 on Friday afternoons at Horley Baptist Church building which is on Court Lodge Road, RH6 8RG, opposite the shopping parade. The team does not meet on Good Friday or on the Fridays during the Christmas and New Year seasons and usually takes a break throughout August, resuming activities on the first Saturday of September.

~ The Billingshurst warehouse is open between 09:30 and 12:30 each Saturday – deliveries at other times are strictly by appointment only. The warehouse is not normally open on Saturdays during August or over the Christmas and New Year period.

~ The clothes collection boxes are open 24-7 as usual but the box at St Francis’s Church is being rebuilt and a temporary arrangement is in place.

~ The south Wales teams’ normal activities continue unabated!

Please remember to check our Priority Items list before donating items for Romania. For up-to-date information please contact your local co-ordinators.

Please do not send prescription medicines. These drugs are potentially dangerous if misused. AN does not have the expertise or the legal authority to distribute them safely and local pharmacies cannot accept them. Disposal becomes a serious problem and they are a waste of precious load space. Non-prescription medicines, vitamins, energy drinks and unused items such as bandages or syringes are still acceptable.
