STAFF at St Richard’s Hospice have asked local residents to ‘give up’ 40 items of clothing, bric-a-brac and books in the 40 days of Lent.
The county hospice is calling for people to de-clutter and donate unwanted, good quality items to any of its 18 shops as part of its donation challenge.
Participants can get together with friends, family, colleagues – or go it alone – to collect 40 items, dropping them in at a shop before Lent finishes on Thursday, April 18.
Dan Corns, hospice commercial director, said: “This is a great challenge and could be a fun way to come together with loved ones and colleagues to do something really meaningful for hospice care.”
Once participants have their 40 items ready to donate, they should label their bags ‘St Richard’s Donation Challenge’ and drop it off at their nearest shop.
