A local Stockport charity is urging people thinking of giving their homes and offices a Spring Clean to consider donating unwanted items to help people with cancer and other life-limiting illnesses.
St Ann’s Hospice, which has sites in Little Hulton, Heald Green, and the Neil Cliffe Centre at Wythenshawe Hospital, is asking local people to drop off any unwanted clothing, gift sets, unused bottles, or other items to their hospice shops.
The hospice is also looking for donations of furniture which it can sell at its specialist furniture shops in Ladybarn and Ardwick, and can arrange for pick up of large items from locations across Greater Manchester.
Eamonn O’Neal, Chief Executive of St Ann’s, explained:
“It’s the time of year when we’re all decluttering and thanks to the Marie Kondo effect, many of us are choosing to Spring Clean and clear our homes of items we no longer love, want or need.
“Our shops and regular fundraising fairs and events are incredibly popular, and as a result, we urgently need more donations of items we can sell to raise money for our patients.
“It’s a great way of putting your unloved items to good use, whilst helping us to provide specialist care to local people, right when they need it most.
“We run a house clearance service too, so if you have lots of items that would be hard to transport, or are looking for help to clear full rooms, homes, or out buildings, please do get in touch. We would be happy to help, and would really appreciate your support.”
Donations can be taken to any of the hospice’s charity shops (locations can be found at www.sah.org.uk/shop).
