CHILDREN and their parents are being asked to tidy up their toy boxes as Christmas approaches and donate any unwanted items to the Barnardo’s shop in Chipping Sodbury.

CHILDREN and their parents are being asked to tidy up their toy boxes as Christmas approaches and donate any unwanted items to the Barnardo’s shop in Chipping Sodbury.

Good quality toys, board games, puzzles and video games, as well as books, DVDs and CDs, can be sold on to raise money for vulnerable children and young people.

Jo Ridler, manager of the shop in Hatherells Yard, said: “This is the perfect time of the year for people to check their cupboards, bookshelves and toy boxes to see if there’s anything which their children no longer want or use.

“With Christmas approaching, they can clear some extra room for the latest presents while knowing that we will find a new home for their children’s former favourites.

“It’s also a great way for families to teach their children about the importance of recycling and helping others less fortunate than themselves.”

Anyone who wants to volunteer to work at the store should call in or phone 01454 321929. 

Last year the charity supported 272,000 children, young people and families across the UK.
