THE CHILDREN’S charity, Barnardo’s, has launched a plea to the public for more stock to sell in its shops across Angus.
Charity shop bosses are hoping ‘spring-clean fever’ will encourage customers across Angus to recycle and donate clothes they don’t wear to their local Barnardo’s stores in Montrose and Arbroath.
Barnardo’s Scotland area business manager, Jane Pirie, said: “A good clear out always helps people see what they actually have to wear!”
As well as calling for locals to have a spring-clean of their wardrobes, Barnardo’s Scotland shops are launching their new spring collection of quality clothes and goods and are inviting shoppers to browse the rails for a great spring bargain.
Jane continued: “We hope that families planning to spring clean their homes now will also be intending to spring clean their wardrobes too.
“So, when they drop off their donations, they’ll be able to have a browse of the spring/summer collection in the shops knowing exactly what they need and that their wardrobes have space to take their new purchases.
“As well as quality, competitively priced blouses, tops, dresses, trousers and jackets for all the family, Barnardo’s Scotland shops also stock many new household goods.”
All money raised in Barnardo’s Scotland shops goes towards the charity’s vital work with children, young people and families in the local area.
Barnardo’s shops in Angus are as follows:-
Montrose: 172/174 High Street.
Arbroath: 17 West Port; Unit 9, Abbeygate Shopping Centre, High Street.
