Christmas is a time for giving, but sometimes gifts aren’t always suitable for the receiver, which is why we’re asking people to consider donating any unwanted Christmas gifts this year to help people with cancer and other life-limiting illnesses.
We’re asking local people to drop off any gifts, items of clothing, electrical goods or other items to any of their shops.
Rachel McMillan, Chief Executive of St Ann’s Hospice, explained:
People often have a gift they’ve received over the festive season that either they never get round to using, or that doesn’t fit properly. Instead of leaving it to clutter up a cupboard in your house, we’d love you to consider donating it to our hospice shops where we can certainly make use of it. The money raised from their sale will help us to continue providing our specialist care to those who really need it, and we’d be hugely grateful for your support. 2020 was a tough year for us fundraising wise, and every penny – or item – donated, really does make a big difference to the lives of our patients.
