An Exmouth charity shop is urging residents to ‘restock their shop’.

CLIC Sargent is the UK’s leading cancer charity for children and young people and will launch a ‘Restock Our Shop’ campaign for February.

Clair Jones, stock collection coordinator, said: “After Christmas and the disruption caused by the recent cold weather, our shops are in desperate need of more donations and would hugely benefit from the support of residents.”

They need clothing and textiles, jewellery and accessories, books, CDs, DVDs, china, glass and bric-a-brac.

She said: “All people need to do is bag up their unwanted items and drop them into their local CLIC Sargent shop.

“At the moment, due to lack of funds, we can only help two out of three children and young people who need our help. Ten bags of donated clothing could pay for a wheelchair for use in one of our Homes from Home, so children who are weak can spend time with their family while they’re having treatment in hospital.

“Therefore, I would encourage everyone living in Exmouth and the surrounding area to give charitably and help us improve the lives of young cancer patients.”
