Age NI has issued an urgent appeal for stock to fill the shelves of its Carrickfergus shop.
Kevin Wilson, store manager, is encouraging people to drop their bags of pre-loved clothes into the West Street premises.
“At this time of year, people often make changes to their wardrobes – out go warm cardigans and jumpers and in come lighter, brighter outfits for summer. If you are having a bit of a clear out, then please think about donating your pre-loved clothes to our store. We are urgently in need of stock to fill our shelves.”
The charity delivers care services, provides advice and advocacy, campaigns, fund raises and influences decision-makers to improve later life for all.
Kevin added: “Every bag of items donated means that our shelves are stocked full of quality goods that people want to buy. Every purchase supports our work all over Northern Ireland to help older people live a better later life.
“So if you can make a clothing donation, thank you - you are making a difference to the lives of older people.
“Please call in and see us, Monday - Saturday, 9.00am - 4.45pm. If you are a UK taxpayer, you can also use Gift Aid to increase the value of your donation by 25%. Just ask to speak with a member of our team.”
