For Immediate Release

December 2021


Having a clear out this Christmas? Perhaps you've received an unwanted gift that needs a new home or you're looking to declutter ready for a fresh start to the new year.

Local charity, Age UK Leicester Shire & Rutland has issued an urgent appeal for winter donations to their charity shops. They are calling out to the community to act and donate any good quality, saleable stock including clothing, bric-a-brac, books and furniture to their local Age UK Leicester Shire & Rutland charity shop. More »

Donors can take pride in the knowledge that all money raised from the sale of goods donated is used to support local, vulnerable older people in the community through services such as befriending for the lonely and isolated, information and advice for those struggling to pay their bills and respite services to support older carers.

Anthony Donovan, Executive Director of Age UK Leicester Shire & Rutland commented: "Whilst we have been overwhelmed by the support and generousity from the public in the last twelve months, currently our shops are desperately in need of stock."

"We are a vital lifeline for many vulnerable older people and a source of support for not only them but their families who depend on us to support their loved one, as they many do not live nearby. We rely on fundraising support and the public's donations of pre-loved items to enable us to raise the funds to provide vital services. By donating your goods now and on a regular basis you're giving back and allowing us to continue to be there for those who need us the most" he adds.

Donations can be dropped off at any of Age UK Leicester Shire & Rutland's shops during opening times (full list here: https://www.ageuk.org.uk/leics/shops/) and collection of furniture items can be arranged by calling 0116 299 2233.
