Cancer charity needs goods

Daily Echo: Cancer charity needs goods Cancer charity needs goods

HAMPSHIRE residents are being urged to clear their clutter and help youngsters fight cancer.

Children’s cancer charity CLIC Sargent needs people to dig deep and get behind their Restock Our Shop campaign.

The charity has shops on Southampton’s High Street and Market Street, Eastleigh, which are in desperate need of quality donations.

Clair Jones, from CLIC Sargent, said: “Our shops desperately need donations of clothing and textiles, jewellery and accessories, books, DVDs, china and bric-a-brac. All people need to do is bag up their unwanted items and drop them into their local CLIC Sargent shop.”

Ten bags of donated clothing could pay for a wheelchair for use in one of the charity’s Homes from Home, so children who are weak can spend time with their family while they’re having treatment in Southampton General Hospital.

When we take unwanted items to a charity shop we always go to one that has easy access. Unfortunately dropping items off at the Eastleigh shop involves paying for parking or risk getting a ticket. It might sound to simplistic but if the charity shop had a clearly signed rear access where it was possible to park for the few minutes necessary they might just get more items than previously.

Surely sparing a max of £2 which would go towards helping these poor children is worthwhile. While you worry about paying for parking these childrens parents are fighting to get by. Not only has their child got a life threatening illness they are trying to still pay their bills keep their homes,jobs and family running and keeping a smile on their faces. Such simple minded, selfish people to think the big problem in this is paying for carparking.
