PDSA shop manager, Julie Griffiths said: “Is your wardrobe bulging with unworn clothes or your shelves full of books you never read?

“Why not have a clear-out ready for Summer and donate your unwanted items to PDSA? As well as de-cluttering your home, you’ll be helping raise money for the pets of local people in need.

“We’re appealing for all types of items, especially books, CDs, DVDs and videos, which are popular with our customers.

“We also need home furnishings such as vases, pictures and ornaments, as well as good quality men’s, ladies and children’s clothes. All funds raised will help local sick and injured pets.”
