Give it away now


City Impact Church’s Shaun Vining (pictured on left) and Dean Payn have hoards of pre-loved household goods to give away for nothing on Saturday.

They’re collecting items for the church’s second annual Spring Giveaway – where people hand in second-hand furniture, appliances, clothes, toys and new goods to give to more needy people who can’t afford them.

Last year 500 people scooped up most of the items within three hours, senior pastor Payn says. Locals this year have been dropping off new and used goods to the Frankton church during the week. “Everybody can find something,” Payn says.

Goods, which must be in decent condition, can be dropped off before 11am tomorrow and Saturday – they’ll then be sorted for folk to collect from 1pm Saturday.
