Chil­dren’s char­ity needs your toys

Paisley Daily Express - - Front Page -

Chil­dren’s char­ity Barnardo’s Scot­land is urg­ing peo­ple in Ren­frew­shire to clear out their toy shelves in prepa­ra­tion for Christ­mas and help less for­tu­nate fam­i­lies in the process.

The char­ity’s stores in Lin­wood and Bar­rhead are ask­ing for do­na­tions of toys and games, as well as un­wanted gifts, to sup­port lo­cal chil­dren, young peo­ple and fam­i­lies.

As well as pre-loved qual­ity toys, the char­ity is also keen to re­ceive do­na­tions of un­used toys, games and presents, which of­ten prove pop­u­lar in the run up to Christ­mas when cus­tomers are look­ing for presents at rea­son­able prices.

Area Busi­ness Man­ager, Mag­da­lene Davie, said:“We sell a lot of toys and games at this time of the year and are really grate­ful for the gen­er­ous do­na­tions from lo­cal peo­ple.

“It’s amaz­ing what peo­ple un­earth when they start look­ing in the back of cup­boards and at the bot­tom of the toy box.

“It’s a good ex­cuse to have a clear out at home.

“We’d like to thank all of our cus­tomers and donors for their con­tin­ued sup­port, which really does make a dif­fer­ence to so many lo­cal chil­dren’s lives.”
