Christmas arrives at Barnardo’s Westbury store

Story posted on

A Westbury charity shop is encouraging people to pick up the perfect present while supporting vulnerable children this Christmas.

The Barnardo’s store in Palomino Place is displaying its latest collection of seasonal gifts.

Profits support the charity’s work with some of the UK’s most vulnerable and disadvantaged children and young people.

Barnardo’s manager Nicola Miles said, “Aside from the usual pre-loved items which are generously donated by local supporters, we also receive brand-new stock throughout the year.

“We’ve just received a wonderful collection of potential gifts which are sure to brighten a child’s face on Christmas morning.

“Items include indoor and outdoor play-mats, plus pirate boats, play-dough, slime putty, kaleidoscopes, balloon modelling kits and assorted toy dinosaurs.

“We also have wrapping paper, diaries, decorations, stockings, greeting cards, gift-tags, calendars, bows and bags.

“There are also plenty of other festive treats including Christmas-themed socks, scented candles, bath fizzers and hand soaps.

“There’s something for everyone – and the best thing is that every purchase helps to support the charity’s life-changing work with young carers, care-leavers, victims of abuse and exploitation, and other vulnerable groups.”

The Barnardo’s store is open Monday-Saturday from 9am-5.30pm and on Sundays from 10am-4pm, and always welcomes donations of good-quality clothes, books, toys, games, accessories and bric-a-brac.

Nicola is also keen to hear from potential volunteers who can spare just a few hours each week to help with sorting the stock, arranging displays and serving customers. Call (01373) 822515.

Last year Barnardo’s supported nearly 300,000 children, young people, parents and carers. Visit www.barnardos.org.uk
