We need your donations

This is a desperate plea to all your readers - please, please, please donate to us your unwanted clothes, bric a brac, CDs, DVDs, toys and books. No matter how small your donation is, it makes such a difference to our charity. It enables us to continue making sure the elderly are cared for here and abroad.

We are also able to collect donations (please phone the shop 01629 812928). If you gift aid your donation we can claim even more for it!

Can I take this opportunity to let your readers know of our ‘leaflet hub’.

This is a section of our shop dedicated to free leaflets that can help the elderly with day to day life.

For instance, we currently stock a leaflet ‘Winter Wrapped Up’ which is a guide to keeping well and staying warm in winter. Other leaflets include information on care homes, managing incontinence, wills and estate planning, avoiding scams and many more. And they are all free.

Please call in either for yourself or for anyone who you think may benefit from our leaflets.
