With spring in the air, charity shop bosses are hoping ‘spring-clean fever’ will encourage customers across Aberdeen and Aberdeenshire to donate clothes they no longer need or wear to their local Barnardo’s stores.

As well as calling for customers to spring clean their wardrobes in aid of Barnardo’s Scotland, from March 28 to April 25, shops in Peterhead, Aberdeen and Inverurie are launching a quality denim event at great value prices where shoppers may well find a designer bargain.

Barnardo’s Scotland area business manager for shops in the north, Ailsa Cane, said: “As the weather begins to warm and holiday season looms, we are in great need of donations of spring/summer stock such as dresses, light blouses and tops, sandals and summer hats.

“We hope that families planning to spring clean their homes now will also be spring cleaning their wardrobes.

“And we would be more than happy to receive and recycle unused clothes, shoes and accessories.

“When they drop off their donations, they’ll also be able to have a browse of our denim stock and might even bag themselves a bargain at the same time!”

Barnardo’s Scotland relies on the income generated from their shops to help support their work.

All money raised in their shops goes towards community-based services with children, young people and families in the local area.
