Donate clothes to help raise funds for Rainbows Hospice

Rainbows Hospice for Children and Young People is asking the people of Rutland to donate their clothes to its shops across the East Midlands to help raise money for the charity.

Rainbows, which supports more than 300 children and young people including those from Rutland, needs people to clear out their wardrobes and donate unwanted clothes to its shop in Melton.

Donating clothes worth £10 could help to fund two days’ worth of oxygen for a child, £25 could help fund one hour of physiotherapy and clothes worth £50 could go towards one day of care for a child or young person.

Karen Bilsby, head of retail at Rainbows, said: “For an easy way to lose weight and a simple way of helping the hospice, give us your unwanted clothes. You don’t need to give us any money, just items that you don’t wear anymore.

“It is a great way to shed unwanted pounds, which will make pounds for the hundreds of families we support and help us to keep running our hospice, which is a lifeline for so many families in Rutland.”
