BARNARDO'S shops in Northwich and Winsford are asking people to sort out their wardrobe and donate their pre-loved winter woollies.

Stocks of winter clothes, such as jumpers and coats, are flying off the rails at Barnodo's shops in the area as the weather turns colder.

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

Marie Williams, regional manager for retail operations at Barnardo's, 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."
