Pants Party Lincoln

AFTER LAST YEARS SUCCESS OF A GREAT EVENING SPENT RAISING FUNDS & AWARENESS FOR THE “UNDERCRACKER FUND”... WE ARE BRINGING IT BACK.

This year there’s a festive twist, more music, more food and drink and a whole host of good times.

The aim is simple.

We want to raise awareness, funds and donations for an organisation close to our hearts, DevelopmentPlus. 
Once again we’re collecting donations of (new) pants/socks/underwear/toiletries and small items.
There is also a need for items like old (working) mobile phones, and furniture items.

DevelopmentPlus are a local organisation that work within the local community through neighbourhood boards.
Their aim is to empower residents in the community, through training and support, but also focusing on mental health and wellbeing. They also encourage opportunities for personal development and initiatives that will improve lives of the individuals and the areas they live in. 
They also work closely to form cohesion between community & agency.

In our busy days, it’s easy to loose that sense of community, but at a social level, it’s so important that we maintain it, and care for it. It is after all the foundations of what our great city is built on.
