Recycle your unwanted presents at Barnardo’s

Barnardo’s NI Coleraine shop is appealing for unwanted gifts to be donated so they can be sold to raise vital funds for local vulnerable and disadvantaged children.

With an estimated 30 percent of the gifts given at Christmas being unwanted, Barnardo’s guarantees they can find a customer for those unwanted gifts.

Coleraine shop manager Sarah McCotter said: “At some time we have all received a gift at Christmas that’s not suitable or we quite simply don’t want – and if you find yourself in that situation this year you can always find a good home for it by donating it to a Barnardo’s shop.

“The money raised from the sale of goods received by our shops goes directly towards helping disadvantaged children across Northern Ireland, so by donating your unwanted Christmas presents you will not only be recycling but also supporting Barnardo’s.

“Every year Barnardo’s NI works to turn around the lives of thousands of children and young people and our promise to you is that every penny raised locally is used locally.”

The Coleraine store is located at Stone Row.
