Although donations were supposed to be delivered to St Oswald’s a few weeks ago, staff had so many old clothing items to bag up that the firm decided to extend the deadline.
MD Garry Sheriff and his son Elliot were among those who dropped off the donations to the store based in Whickham. Elliot has been volunteering at the shop for the past year after getting a six-month placement for his Duke of Edinburgh Award and he’s enjoying it so much that he’s continued to volunteer!
Their “Bag It” appeal back in 2017 raised an estimated £1,400 in donations so they’re hoping to do just as well if not better this year.
Good luck ITPS!
