THE Barnardo’s store in Westbury is asking residents to donate their pre-loved winter woollies in order to raise funds for vulnerable children.

Stocks of clothes such as coats, jumpers and scarves are selling fast as the weather turns colder. Therefore the store in Palomino Place, Leigh Park, is keen to receive more winter clothing for both adults and children.

Barnardo’s manager Linda Hazell said, “We really need people to look inside their wardrobes and dig out any good-quality coats, jumpers, and winter warmers that they haven’t worn for a while. This includes boots, gloves, hats and other items.

“We’d also welcome any accessories, toys, books and bric-a-brac to restock our shelves. Not only does the money raised help to fund our work with disadvantaged and vulnerable children, but our store also gives local families the opportunity to buy clothes and presents for Christmas at an affordable price.”

The Palomino Place store is open Monday-Saturday from 9am-5.30pm and on Sundays from 10am-4pm. Potential volunteers are also welcome. Call 01373 822515.

Last year Barnardo’s supported more than 272,000 children, young people and families through more than 1,000 services across the UK. Visit www.barnardos .org.uk
