We need your un­wanted gifts

Harefield Gazette - - NEWS -

EV­ERY year we all end up with at least one un­wanted Christ­mas present. Whether it is a DVD you have al­ready seen, a book you have al­ready read or the an­nual pair of knit­ted socks from Aunty Doris, there is al­ways some­thing we could hap­pily do with­out, sit­ting around at this time of year.

So this year, why not do­nate it to your lo­cal RSPCA char­ity shop and help raise vi­tal funds for an­i­mals in need?

RSPCA Mid­dle­sex North-West is of­fer­ing a guilt-free way to off­load un­wanted Christ­mas gifts, by ap­peal­ing for them to be do­nated to its net­work of char­ity shops.

There are seven shops all very happy to ac­cept your sur­plus presents, with pro­ceeds from their sale help­ing to pay for the re­cov­ery, re­hom­ing and care of abused and ne­glected lo­cal an­i­mals.

RSPCA shop man­ager Mags Wheat­ley said: “Ev­ery Christ­mas peo­ple re­ceive presents they don’t re­ally need, want or may al­ready have. It would be a shame to leave th­ese un­wanted gifts to gather dust when they can go to a good home and raise money for a good cause at the same tim
