After six absolutely fantastic years, we at Rough Threads are sad to announce that we are closing our doors and will no longer be hosting our events. Rough Threads has been an institution in many community centres, and we'd like to thank each and every volunteer, supporter and visitor who has shaped Rough Threads into such a wonderful organisation. You have all helped make our events warm, connective and collaborative and we are so proud of the community spirit that has been generated.
For something that started as a one-off clothing drive between friends, we sure have moved leaps and bounds into producing the kind of statistics we have today! It is only through the tireless work of our volunteers that we can continue to expand and grow as we are. So from the bottom of our hearts we would like to thank each and every one of you for your contribution, ideas and generous spirit.
Together, we have helped over 6000 people in need, distributed more than 75000 items of clothing, shoes and toiletries and provided access to over 2000 hard-to-find services. We couldn’t have done this without your help. We know, that even though Rough Threads events have now ended, the message of ‘we are all in this together’ will live on through each and every one of you. We look forward to seeing what you all do next!
We urge you to continue volunteering and supporting communities in need in your local area. Other local organisations in the Darlinghurst area which you may like to reach out too include; Rough Edges Cafe - St Canice's Kitchen - OzHarvest
Remember, be kind, as we are all in this together.
