Recycle your unsuitable Christmas gifts with Barnardo's

RECYCLE your unsuitable Christmas gifts and help vulnerable children at the same time, is the message from children's charity Barnardo's.

Barnardo's is appealing for those 'not quite right' gifts from the festive season to be donated to their chain of shops across Merseyside so they can be sold to raise vital funds.

The money will be used to help disadvantaged children and young people, including those who are living in poverty, in care, who are disabled or who have been sexually exploited.

Adults in the UK receive millions of pounds worth of unwanted gifts at Christmas, with a 3rd of those ending up gathering dust in the back of a cupboard.

Marie Williams, Barnardo's Regional Manager for Retail Operations said:- "Barnardo's stores are dependent upon the public's kind donations. When you get a present that is unsuitable for you, or that you don't like, it can be awkward as you may not know what to do with it. Instead of leaving them in the back of a cupboard, re-gifting or even throwing them away, why not donate these presents to Barnardo's stores. Our profits go directly into our work with some of the region's most vulnerable children and young people, meaning your gift really could make a difference to children who need our support."

The worth of all of those unsuitable gifts soon adds up and as an example could provide:-

► 1 of your multiple ₤18 cookbooks could pay for three young carers to enjoy an afternoon of respite from their caring duties, giving them the chance to relax and meet other children.

► That ₤25 DVD box set you've already got could help to pay for a case worker to give life changing practical support and safety advice to a young person affected by sexual exploitation.

Barnardo's shops sell:- collectibles, household goods, books, toys, children's clothes, men's and ladies' fashions and accessories.
