Detox your toy box for Barnardo's before Christmas

PARENTS in Merseyside are being urged to 'detox their toy box' in the last minute run up to Christmas and donate quality toys and games to the UK's leading children's charity.  All profits raised from the sale of toys at Barnardo's shops across Merseyside will be used to help vulnerable children, young people and families supported by the charity across the Region.

Barnardo's supports more than 2,000 children, young people and families each year through its services across Merseyside, including young carers, care leavers, teenage or young parents, children in care and young people with mental health issues. As well as pre-loved quality toys, the charity is also keen to receive donations of unused toys and games, which often prove popular in the late run up to Christmas when customers are looking for presents at reasonable prices.

Marie Williams, Barnardo's Regional Manager for Retail Operations said:- "We sell a lot of toys and games at this time of the year and are really grateful for the generous donations from local people. It's amazing what people unearth when they start looking in the back of cupboards and at the bottom of the toy box. As all profits help vulnerable children who live locally, it's a good excuse to have a clear out at home before the influx of new toys arrive. We'd like to thank all of our customers and donors for their continued support, which really does make a difference to so many local children's lives."

Unused toiletries that can be used as gifts for teenagers also prove popular in Barnardo's shops and are welcome donations, as well as the usual clothing and accessory donations that the charity welcomes all year round.
