SHOPPERS at Tesco in Broadbridge Heath are being urged to help raise bags of money for Cancer Research UK.

All they have to do is take unwanted clothes, shoes, boots and bags with them when they make their regular shopping trip.

Tesco is running a Donation Station in support of the charity from January 21 to 29.

Donation Station enables shoppers and employees to donate a bag of quality items and raise funds for Cancer Research UK’s life-saving work without having to put their hands in their pockets.

Every bag of good-quality items donated could be worth up to £30.

Tesco’s Extra in Horsham is aiming to bring in more than 600 bags, which will then be sold in local Cancer Research UK shops.

Customers can pick up a bag from the Donation Station drop off point at the entrance to Tesco’s Extra , fill it at home and return next time they are shopping, or simply bring any bag from home.

Glyn Williams, store manager, said: “We’re delighted to be hosting the Donation Station, particularly as all donations will be going to support our local Cancer Research UK stores.

“Unfortunately, many of us have been affected by cancer to some extent, and the impact can be felt by almost everyone in the community. I know that the people of Horsham will pull together and donate all they can to this very worthy cause.”

Items that can be donated include good quality clothing, accessories, quality homewares, books, CDs, DVDs, and mobile phones.

Shop manager Victoria Francis, for Cancer Research UK, said: “We’d like to thank Tesco’s Extra for allowing us to hold our Donation Station with them. We hope people will take advantage of this easy way to donate and have a clear out, whilst lending their support to a great cause.”
