A life-changing children's hospice is making an urgent appeal for donations as part of their newest campaign for a county declutter.
Keech Hospice has launched the #DeclutterForKeech campaign after a dramatic decline in suitable sale items for their stores.
Lewis-Duncan Weedon, fashion stylist, make-up artist to the stars and Harpenden resident, is an enthusiastic supporter of Keech Hospice.
He said: “I went home and did a #DeclutterForKeech. I urge everyone to please do the same, hand in and help out.
“I donate regularly to my local Keech Hospice Care shop and I know first-hand what a difference this incredible charity makes to the whole family’s life.
“Please empty your wardrobes, kitchen cupboards, the kids’ toy box and have a good clear out.”
Angela Burgess, head of retail at Keech Hospice Care, added: “Most of us have wardrobes, cupboards and lofts with great items in, which we never wear or use anymore. It’s exactly this stuff we need, which will make such a difference to helping us provide the best care.”
The charity needs £5.6 million per year to care for terminally ill adults and children across the county, with 70 per cent of that sum raised by public donation.
A lack of good-quality donated goods, has recently lost Keech Hospice the equivalent of eight months worth of specialist nurse care.
Give donations to your local Keech Hospice Care shop or call 0800 032 3440 to arrange for furniture collections.
