PEOPLE are being urged to donate unwanted items to support Acorn’s Children’s Hospice.

The charity, which cares for life limited children in Droitwich and Bromsgrove, is appealing to households in the two towns to have a spring clear out to find items to donate.

The charity’s stores, based in Droitwich’s St Andrews Street and Bromsgrove’s High Street, are urgently seeking summer items to sell to raise funds. Clothing and accessories such as sun dresses, skirts, shorts, t-shirts, sandals, hats and swimwear and beachwear are all needed.

Donating good quality items is an easy way to help to support the charity’s vital work with children and young people with serious conditions.

Val Hammond, retail area manager for the charity, said: “We’ve had some great support from the local community so far this year, but we’re still looking for donations to help fill our shelves ready for summer.

“Spring offers the perfect opportunity to dust off those dresses and sort out those shorts and donate any unwanted items to us.”

Donations can be taken to the shops during the opening hours of 9am to 5pm, Monday to Saturday.
