Cash4Clothes is offering people the chance to support a great local cause just by dropping off your unwanted clothes, shoes and accessories.
The shop based on Blackpool Road is giving customers the chance to make good use of any clothes being cleared out by donating the money to BabyBeat.
Throughout October, the 40p per kilo that customers can get from donating clothes can be given straight to the Neonatal charity.
The BabyBeat Appeal was launched in 1987 and has been supporting mothers and babies in Central Lancashire ever since.
The charity based at the Sharoe Green Unit in Royal Preston Hospital, works tirelessly to give the babies born in the area the very best chance for life.
Lisa Walmsley, Manager at Cash4Clothes, is a big supporter of the work BabyBeat does and saw an opportunity to support the charity this month:
“We thought this was a fantastic opportunity to show our support for a really important local charity. Baby Beat exists to make improvements in facilities and equipment for babies on the maternity and neonatal units at Royal Preston Hospital, and we are delighted to be able to help them with our Autumn Clear Out!”
Temporary Manager at Baby Beat, Cathy Skidmore, was very thankful for the Cash4Clothes campaign:
“We are so grateful to Lisa and Cash4Clothes for offering us this opportunity. Every donation will really help us to continue providing the best possible services for new mums and babies at Lancashire Teaching Hospitals. We would be so appreciative of any donations to Cash4Clothes, big or small, to help us out in what are challenging times.”
Donations can be dropped off at Cash4Clothes, 437 Blackpool Road, Ashton-on-Ribble, Preston. Sealed bags of donated items can also be dropped at the Baby Beat Shop in the Sharoe Green Maternity Unit at Royal Preston Hospital, 10am-4pm Monday to Friday.
Items of clothing, shoes, handbags, belts and other accessories are accepted. Towels, bedding and curtains, unfortunately, cannot be accepted.
