Residents urged to donate unwanted gifts to St Francis Hospice

Residents who receive unwanted Christmas presents this year are being urged to donate them to St Francis Hospice instead of throwing them away.

The hospice in Havering-atte-Bower is appealing for people’s unwanted gifts.

The new and quality items can include clothes, toys, furniture, jewellery and electrical goods.

Steve Rose, hospice shops General Manager said: “Please don’t throw unwanted Christmas presents away as we are urging people to donate them to our shops as it could be just what someone else wants.

“Perhaps a new present received at Christmas means there’s now something in your house you no longer need. Please do consider giving it to us. We want to make sure our shops are well-stocked for the January bargain hunters.”

Donations can be dropped off at a hospice shop or a drop spot.
