St Giles Hospice shops appeal for unwanted Christmas presents

A hospice based near Lichfield is calling on people to donate their unwanted Christmas gifts to its network of charity shops.

The 19 St Giles Hospice shops across the region help raise funds to help pay for the care of people living with cancer and other serious illnesses.

Lynwen Truesdale, Income Generation Director for St Giles Hospice, added:

“Every Christmas people receive presents they don’t really need, want or may already have. They may not have a receipt or cannot find the energy to exchange the gift in the shop, and the unwanted present invariably ends up as a new addition to the household clutter.

“It would be a shame to leave these unwanted gifts to gather dust when they can go to a good home and raise money for a good cause at the same time.

“Unwanted presents are vital for our successful charity shops, and by donating gifts they don’t wish to keep, local people can make a positive start to the year – as well as give a helping hand to the hospice.”
