Have a Christmas clearout

PEOPLE who are having a pre-Christmas clearout or are looking for an unusual gift are being urged to consider a charity shop.

The Mind shop in High Street, Stamford, is calling on residents to give a gift to someone they don’t know this Christmas by donating an item to the store during their usual Christmas shopping trips.

Charity shops also need donations of new items during the festive season.

Shop manager Victoria Easton said: “Christmas is a time when many of us are thinking about how we can give to charity as well as what to give to each other and we’re thrilled that people are coming into the store to pick up gifts and stocking fillers for loved ones.”
