The Courier & Advertiser (Angus and The Mearns Edition) - - NEWS -

Peo­ple in An­gus and Dundee are be­ing urged to clear out their toy shelves ahead of Christ­mas to help less for­tu­nate fam­i­lies.

Chil­dren’s char­ity Barnardo’s Scot­land is ask­ing peo­ple to hand in do­na­tions of toys and games to any of its five stores through­out An­gus and Dundee.

Ca­role Robertson, area busi­ness man­ager, 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.”

The An­gus branches are in Ar­broath and Mon­trose.
