Charity shops in Nailsea and Clevedon are appealing for people to donate unwanted Christmas presents to help young cancer patients.

CLIC Sargent’s shops are looking for gifts, clothes or homeware which can be sold to raise money to help the charity support children and teenagers with cancer.

Research from CLIC Sargent shows families spend around £600 extra a month when a child or young person is diagnosed with cancer, leaving many families under huge financial strain.

Emilie Debbonaire from CLIC Sargent, said: “The new year is always a good opportunity to have a clear out, so why not donate some of those unwanted things to a fantastic cause.

“CLIC Sargent’s shops rely completely on donations and every penny raised goes towards helping young cancer patients.”
