‘Don’t dump it, donate it’ is March charity shop’s New Year message
‘DON’T dump it, donate it’ is the New Year message from a March charity shop which wants to raise money by selling your unwanted items.
The Sue Ryder shop, in March High Street, is holding the fundraising event in the town’s market place on Sunday January 22.
Staff hope to fill a giant van with an array of items which can be sold to raise funds for the charity’s palliative care home in Peterborough.
Jeni Baines, shop manager, said: “At the weekends people tend to clear their garages and end up dumping or taking those things to landfill.
“A lot of those items could be sold in the shop - or to our rag merchants - which will end up helping some of the people who need it the most.

“So our message is ‘don’t dump it, donate it’ and come and see us in the market place. It will really make a difference.”
Shoes, handbags, toys and textiles are just some of the items that Sue Ryder sells to help provide support for people living through life-changing illnesses such as cancer and Parkinson’s disease.
