A charity shop is asking party–goers to be generous with their unwanted clothes during the festive season.

Mind, in Firs Parade, Matlock, is appealing to people to donate last year’s party dress in order to help them meet high demand.

Shop manager Angela Jones said: “Every year we welcome shoppers keen to find a reasonably–priced party frock to add festive sparkle, that doesn’t cost the earth, to these occasions. This year is no exception.

“To help us meet this exceptionally high demand, we’re asking residents to drop in and make a donation. We need your help to make someone else’s Christmas extra special this year, and raise vital funds for the one in four people who experience mental health problems every year.”
