Tansley Car Boot in the sunshine!

Tansley Car Boot sale in May sunshine is a very different proposition than the frozen fields of February!   So sunny was it in fact that many of the DRS team had to take naps to revive themselves!  Not Steve Cooke of course. He is made of sterner stuff....possibly bionic. We made £221 to help fund our various projects and it's all thanks to the generosity of people who donate to us! Thank you soooo much!!

Muslims in Need/DRS Container to Syria is on its way!!

Saturday morning saw one of our favourite events of all the lovely things we do! The amazing Muslims in Need Team organised for a HUGE container to arrive at the warehouse and about thirty of us took several hours to fill it with 16 tons of aid which is now on its way to Syria!

This is when everything comes together.: all your generous donations; all the sorting done by our wonderful team of volunteers; the experience and commitment of the fantastic team at Muslims in Need; the energy and teamwork of everyone who turned up on the day! 

Thank you again to everyone who made this possible. Look out for more news when the container arrives at its destination!

Welcome to DRS Towers....

Sometimes we at DRS like pretend we are "roughing it" down at the warehouse....But just in case you haven't been down for a while, here's the truth..

Although these premises are still only temporary and we continue to look for a more permanent solution, at our current location we have the following facilities; a very large open area; four adjoining rooms organised into Moses Basket and Car Boot sorting room; a kitchen for our sole use; an office with all the filing cabinets you could wish for; a reception area that we have yet to exploit for all its potential. 

If you have an idea of how we can make even better use of all this lovely space to help refugees abroad and in the UK, please get in touch!

Derby People's Diary Zine Launch!

Derby People's Diary Zine launch was a lovely event yesterday. Loads of inspiring people and "humanity in action" everywhere! The first copies of the zine will be available at the warehouse for your perusal.

DRS were represented by King Zak of Tansley, Lord Lawrence of the Lanyards, Hafiz the Brave and Bossymomma Ju. Hafiz did a stormin Q&A set, clearly another of his many talents!
