Out with the Old in the New Year

New Year is the perfect opportunity to clear out your wardrobe for 2010 and donate unwanted Christmas gifts to charity.  The Children’s Hospice Association Scotland (CHAS) is keen to restock the shelves at their charity shops at 76 and 88 High Street Kinross and temporary shops at the Kingsgate Centre in Dunfermline and The Centre, Livingston.

CHAS are looking for clothing, textiles, accessories, DVDs, bric-a-brac, toys, games, jewellery, household items and books.  All profits from CHAS shops help to enrich the lives of the children, young people and their families across Scotland who rely on the vital hospice services provided by CHAS.

Kinross shops are open Monday to Saturday 9.30am to 5pm. The Dunfermline and Livingston shops are only open on Fridays from 11am to 3pm.  For more information contact Liz Aitken on 01577 867 810.

CHAS are also looking for volunteers in the shops, mail order or in the Kinross Fundraising Office, please call Frances Todd at the Gift Shop on 01577 865 557 or Alison Rennie at the Kinross fundraising office on 01577 865 222.
