Melton Rainbows wants your clothes

Rainbows Hospice for Children and Young People is urging people to donate old clothing garments.

The charity is asking people to clear out their winter wardrobe, sort through their summer clothes, and donate any unwanted items to its Melton shop in Sherrard Street.

Karen Bilsby, head of retail at Rainbows, said: “We are always in need of stock for our shops and we would love to find new homes for your reusable items. Whether you are clearing out the winter woollies or whether you fancy a new summer wardrobe, we need your unwanted clothes.

“Selling clothes worth £20 could help to fund a music therapy session for a child, £25, could help fund the cost of one week’s play materials and a sale of £80 funds our care team for an hour.

“Ask yourself if you are likely to wear the items next year and if you think not, please consider donating them.”
