A CHILDREN’S hospice is appealing for donations of unwanted Christmas presents to help refresh stock at shops across Solihull.
Acorns Children’s Hospice is on the look out for pair of socks, board games, gift sets among other items to help sick youngsters and their families across the borough.
The hospice needs £27,000 per day to provide its care and support services, with the charity’s network of shops across the West Midlands playing a key part in helping to raise those funds.
Gary added: “There’s no time like the ‘present’ to declutter your home and donate your unwanted gifts to one of our Acorns shops.
“You might even need to clear space on your shelves or in your wardrobe for the presents you love. So why not donate your preloved items too? By doing so you’ll be helping us continue providing our vital children’s hospice care.”
Donations can be handed to the Knowle shop on St John’s Way, the Shirley shop on Stratford Road and the one in Chemsley Wood Shopping Centre.
In the past year the charity has cared for more than 700 children and almost 1,000 families, including those who are bereaved.
