A NORTH Somerset charity has launched a campaign to top-up the stock in its shops following the busy Christmas period.

Weston Hospicecare, which has stored including those in Hill Road in Clevedon, Broad Street in Congresbury and Yatton High Street, will run the appeal from January 16-23.

This is the third year the charity has held the campaign and resulting profits will go back into the valuable work it carries out from its hospice in Uphill near Weston.

Retail manager Linda Kelly said: “We had a very busy Christmas, which is fantastic, but this does leave us with a dent in our stock.

“As always, our local community can help by reaching into the back of those cupboards and bringing us their hidden gems.”
