New stock needed for charity shop
A PORTISHEAD charity shop is asking people to de-clutter their homes and contribute to its stock.
The Children’s Hospice South West (CHSW) shop completes two years of successful trading on March 5 and aims to fill the shop with new stock to mark the occasion.
The charity is looking for donations of good quality clothing, bags, books, toys, games, CDs, DVDs and bric-a-brac.
Profits from the shop help CHSW to support local life-limited children and their families at Charlton Farm Hospice in Wraxall. This offers short breaks, palliative, emergency and end-of-life care.
Shop manager, Glenys Biss, said: “We have had a fantastic first two years of trading and would like to say a huge thank you to all our local supporters.

As well as donations from individuals, the charity is also calling on local schools and community groups to organise joint collections.
