Donate your unwanted gifts to charity shop

Residents are being urged to have a clear out and donate any unwanted Christmas gifts to the Age UK shop in Pocklington and see in the New Year clutter free.

The shop, on Market Place, accepts donations of both new and second hand items, all of which are then sold on to be loved again, helping to raise vital funds for the charity’s work supporting older people.

Heather Milan-Young, shop manager, said: “It can be difficult knowing what do to with gifts that will never be used, however by donating unwanted Christmas presents or old items to our shop people will be helping a great cause. Not only could they be another person’s treasure, your donations will also help us brighten up 2016 for an older person and that’s why we are urging everyone in the area to have a clear out and get rid of any items they don’t fancy holding onto, they will really help us kick off the New Year and raise vital funds.”
