Donate Your Winter Woollies To Charity
As colder weather arrives, Barnardo's in Chiswick need them to meet demand
Local residents are urged to have a pre-Christmas sort-out out and donate their pre-loved winter woollies to the Barnardo’s store in Chiswick.
Stocks of winter clothes, such as jumpers and coats, are flying off the rails at the shop in Turnham Green Terrace. As the weather turns colder, the children’s charity desperately needs more adults’ and kids’ winter clothing as well as unused and pre-loved quality toys in a bid to meet the demand.
Barnardo’s store Chiswick associates Malcolm Sharp and Leanne Rich outside the shop in Turnham Green Terrace,
Shoppers not only have the chance to buy quality items at bargain prices but are also doing their bit to help London’s vulnerable children and young people. All money raised in the shops is ploughed back into Barnardo’s services supporting vulnerable children, young people and families across the capital, including those who are sexually exploited, who are at risk of homelessness or who are leaving care.
Leanne Rich, manager of the Chiswick Barnardo’s store, said: “We really need people to look in their wardrobes and dig out any good quality coats, jumpers, and winter warmers that they haven’t worn for a while and bring them down to us in Turnham Green Terrace. We’d also welcome any accessories, toys, books and bric-a-brac.
“The money raised from the sale of these items fund our work with disadvantaged children and young people in London, and local families will have the opportunity to buy vital warm clothes and presents at an affordable price. It also helps clear out much-needed space around the house in time for Christmas.”
Barnardo’s Chiswick store is at 72 Turnham Green Terrace, W4 1QF. It is open 10am to 6pm Monday to Friday, and 10am to 4pm on Sundays.
Last year 272,000 children, young people, parents and
carers were supported by Barnardo’s through more than 1,000 services across
the UK, such as young carers, care leavers, foster carers and adoptive
parents, training and skills or parenting classes.
