Shoppers are urged to have a pre-Christmas sort-out out and donate winter woollies to four Barnardo’s stores in South London.

Stocks of winter clothes, such as jumpers and coats, are flying off the rails at the shops in Eltham, Thamesmead, Downham and Brixton.

As the weather turns colder, the children’s charity desperately needs more adults’ and kids’ winter clothing, as well as toys, in a bid to meet the demand.

Shoppers not only have the chance to buy quality items at bargain prices but will also be doing their bit to help London’s vulnerable children and young people. All money raised in the shops is ploughed back into Barnardo’s services supporting vulnerable children, young people and families across the capital, including those who are sexually exploited, at risk of homelessness or who are leaving care.

Area manager Jonathan Cage said: “We really need residents to look in their wardrobes and dig out any good quality coats, jumpers, and winter warmers that they haven’t worn for a while and bring them down to one of our South London stores.

“We would also welcome any accessories, toys, books and bric-a-brac.

“The money raised from the sale of these items funds our work with disadvantaged children and young people.

“Families will have the opportunity to buy vital warm clothes and presents at an affordable price.

“It also helps clear out much-needed space around the house in time for Christmas.”

Barnardo’s South London shops can be found in Eltham High Street, Battery Road, Thamesmead; Brixton Road, Brixton; and Bromley Road, Downham.
