Winter woollies at Barnardo's l-r Nicky Midgley, Natalie Dixon and Vicky Dobie from Barnardo’s

Staff at Barnardo’s shops across Nantwich and Crewe are appealing for people to have a pre-Christmas sort-out – and donate unwanted winter woollies.

Stocks of winter clothes – such as jumpers and coats – are flying off the rails at the charity’s shops in Nantwich, Stapeley and Crewe, as the weather turns colder.

The charity desperately needs more adults’ and kids’ winter clothing as well as unused and pre-loved quality toys in a bid to meet the demand.

Shoppers not only have the chance to buy items at bargain prices at their local Barnardo’s store but are also doing their bit to support Cheshire’s vulnerable children and families.

Money raised in the shops is ploughed back into local Barnardo’s projects.

In Cheshire, Barnardo’s works in partnership with local charity Cheshire Without Abuse to run Cheshire East Domestic Abuse Service, offering intensive, specialist support for women, men and their children who have experienced domestic abuse, or who are living in fear.

Marie Williams, Barnardo’s regional manager for retail operations, said: “We really need people to look in their wardrobes and dig out any good quality coats, jumpers, and winter warmers that they haven’t worn for a while and bring them down to their local Barnardo’s shop.

“We’d also welcome any accessories, toys, books and bric-a-brac.

“Not only does the money raised from the sale of these items fund our work with vulnerable families in the area, but our shops also give local families the opportunity to buy vital warm clothes and presents for birthdays and Christmas at an affordable price.

“It also gives people the chance to clear out that much-needed space around the house, in time for Christmas!”
