Have a New Year clear out

RESIDENTS in Nailsea and Clevedon are being asked to donate unwanted items to charity as part of a New Year Clear Out campaign.

Being run by CLIC Sargent, the children’s cancer charity is hoping that as households make more room to house their Christmas presents, they will be able to give old items to its shops in the two towns.

Throughout January, CLIC Sargent is aiming to raise �70,000 from the resale of unwanted Christmas gifts and donated stock and the stores in Old Street in Clevedon and Colliers Walk in Nailsea are ready to start receiving donations for the campaign.

CLIC Sargent stock collection coordinator Clair Jones said: “Just one bag of donated stock is worth around �30 to CLIC Sargent so we’re encouraging Clevedon and Nailsea locals to have a clear out this New Year and donate clothing, books, CDs, DVDs, collectable and bric-a-brac to CLIC Sargent.

“Whether you received two of the same gifts at Christmas or you’re making room for all your new presents, we’re happy to take your donated items and give them a second lease of life.”

All money raised through the New Year Clear Out campaign will allow CLIC Sargent to help even more children and young people with cancer from the point of diagnosis and support the whole family in coping with the impact of cancer and its treatment.
