Donate your unwanted presents by ‘regifting’ them to Grantham charities
Two causes are appealing to the community to make the most of any unwanted Christmas presents by donating them to charity.
Instead of leaving them in the back of a cupboard to be forgotten about, ‘regifting’ presents is becoming more popular.
It is the fifth year that Friends of Sandon and Ambergate (FOSA), who are the official fund-raisers for Grantham Additional Needs Fellowship (GANF), have run their gifts appeal in conjunction with the Yorkshire Bank.
FOSA raises money for extracurricular activities for children with autism and multiple learning difficulties.
Donations can be left at Yorkshire Bank, Grantham or sent into the schools.
Age UK is also urging people to give back and donate any unwanted gifts to the Age UK shop, located in the Market Place.
Age UK accepts donations of both new and second hand items, all of which are then sold on to be loved again, helping to raise vital funds for the charity’s work supporting older people.
Kay Dawkins, manager of the Age UK shop in Grantham, said: “It can be difficult knowing what do to with gifts that will never be used, however by donating unwanted Christmas presents or old items to our shop people will be helping a great cause.”
