Brand new clothes have been donated to Rochdale’s Nigerian Community Association.
Boxes of new jackets, shirts, trousers and other apparel were handed over to the Freehold-based organisation, which is run by Mary Adekugbe, by Councillor Faisal Rana.
Mrs Adekugbe, the founder of the Nigerian Community Association, said: "We are a small voluntary group which aims to support our local community and also to promote cultural activities.
“The boxes of brand new clothes will be a great help to those who live locally and are less privileged.
“A massive thank you to Councillor Faisal Rana for making a huge difference by supporting our community.”
Councillor Rana, who has previously supported the group, added: “This invaluable group do a fantastic job in supporting the local community. They work incredibly hard in running a food bank and lots of other activities in supporting needy families. A lot of people rely on the valuable assistance they provide.
"The project is run by the amazing Mary Adekugbe, a tireless worker who puts tremendous effort into everything she does. Rochdale is a much better, kinder place because of her.”
