STAFF at a clothing store are appealing for unwanted Christmas gifts as part of a charity push.

Workers at the Bonne Marche store, in Middleton Grange Shopping Centre, Hartlepool, are urging customers to dig out any festive gifts that they will not use, that do not fit, or that they simply do not want, and turn them into money for Macmillan Cancer Research.

Once the items have been collected they will be raffled in-store with all the cash going to the worthy cause.

Manager Alison Usher, said the shop carried out the same drive last year and raised £250 which they will hopefully beat this time around.

Staff will accept anything from clothing, handbags, shoes, sweets, smellies, or make-up.

Ms Usher said: “We’ve asked our customers that if they have any unwanted gifts to bring them in to the store so we can raffle them off and give all the money to Macmillan.

“We’re asking everyone to dig deep and hand things over so that we can beat our total from last year.

“We always support Macmillan massively and we always get behind them. It’s a great cause.”

Anyone with an unwanted item should take it in to the store.
