A local hospice is asking that residents beginning their Spring cleaning and looking to get rid of a few things, think about donating them to their charity rather than a landfill site.
The Michael Sobell Hospice have been looking after those needing palliative care in the area for the last 45 years, and donations of any household items helps them raise funds to keep this good work going.
Donating while decluttering is also a far more eco-friendly way of disposing of unwanted stuff, with many items still being reusable. On average, people in the UK throw out seven times their body weight every year, so this is a far more sustainable way of clearing clutter.
So, if you have any well looked after pre-loved goods that you’d be happier going to a new home rather than being chucked away, feel free to bring them down to your nearest Michael Sobell Hospice charity shop.
Decluttering can also be great way to clear the mind, giving you a nice new environment to live in, with a tidier space leading to a calm, happier person.
Alternatively, you can also bring them down to the charity’s fundraising office, based at the Mount Vernon hospital, open between 9am-5pm every Monday to Friday.
