ACORNS Children’s Hospice store in Droitwich is appealing for people to donate unwanted school uniforms and items to help raise funds.

People rummaging through their wardrobes for light and bright clothes are being asked to bag their spare unwanted items up and take them to Acorns’ store, based in St Andrew’s Street, to help maintain stocks for sale during the schools’ summer break.

Janice McPherson, Acorns’ head of retail, said: “Acorns’ 54 stores will be welcoming hundreds of bargain hunters over the holidays. We want to keep up stock levels to feed demand, during this busy period.

“The school break is an ideal time for a wardrobe clear-out. Acorns urgently needs these donations, relying on them for a large part of the £8million income needed to provide constant 24/7 care for children and families.

“Local people in every area can really help by donating quality goods, including children's clothes and toys, ladies and men’s clothes and accessories, household items, books, CDs and DVDs. Even goods not resalable are welcome.”

Acorns Children's Hospice cares for local children who have life limiting or life threatening conditions and families, including those that are bereaved.
