The Donate It Day for Children's Hospice South West was a great success.

More than 100 bags of unwanted items, ranging from clothes to children's toys and equipment, were donated at the charity event at The Barn, Clevedon.  

Donations taken to the youth and community centre will be sold in CHSW shops, enabling the local charity to keep raising a smile for life-limited children.

CHSW offers short breaks, palliative, emergency, and end of life care to life-limited children and care and support to their families.  

Charlton Farm at Wraxall is a friendly 'home from home' where the whole family can make the most of the precious time they have together: as a result, the rooms are often filled with the sound of joy and laughter.

CHSW retail stock generator Jane Smith said: "We'd like to say a big thank you to all the staff and volunteers at The Barn as well as everyone who donated items for making the Donate It Day such a success.   

"We had a great variety of good quality items donated so if you're looking for a bargain head down to one of our local shops soon."

CHSW now has 16 charity shops throughout the south west – in Barnstaple, Bideford, Bristol, Exeter, Honiton, Nailsea, Plymouth, Portishead, St Austell, Tavistock, Truro and Wellington – and relies on the support of the local community to help keep them running and well stocked.

The charity welcomes donations throughout the year.  

Items can be dropped off at your local shop at Charlton Farm hospice in Wraxall.

Alternatively, if people have large items or a large quantity of items and are unable to transport them, CHSW can arrange collection.  

Contact Jane on 01275 866600 to arrange collection.
