We recently “retired” some of our foul-weather-gear suits from active service. Foul weather gear is worn by our rescuers when out at sea, protecting them from the elements. The sets consist of a thick padded jacket with hood and matching dungaree pants.
Since this clothing had been donated to us, we wanted to be able to pass it on to another good cause. During the recent rain in Cape Town, we noticed the dedicated BIG ISSUE vendors selling their magazines despite the downpour.
We are pleased to be able to pass this clothing on to the BIG ISSUE vendors.
* The Big Issue creates jobs for unemployed, homeless and socially excluded adults.
