Make tracks for donation station

Shoppers can help a charity cancer with a scheme launched in Horsham yesterday.

They are being invited to drop unwanted goods into a special donation point in the town centre under a scheme backed by Swan Walk shopping centre.

Organisers hope the donations will help beat the £20,000 worth of goods given in 2015 to raise money for Cancer Research U.K

Gill Buchanan, centre manager, said: “Swan Walk’s loyal customers have raised more than £120,000 for Cancer Research UK over recent years.

“After we raised more than £20,000 in 2015 we are hoping to add at least this much again this year. All customers need to do is to pick up a bag, fill it at home and pop it back when they are next in Horsham”

“Our customers can collect a bag from the pick-up point on the mosaic, outside Superdrug, fill it up at home and pop it back to the drop off point when they are next shopping in Horsham.

Cancer Research UK says it will be delighted to receive good quality clothes, shoes, accessories, books, homewares, DVD’s and CD’s. All donations will be used in the first instance to stock the two Cancer Research UK stores in Horsham’s East Street and West Street.

Each bag can be worth up to £30.00 to the charity and donators can also sign up for Gift Aid. Victoria Godfrey, manager at the Cancer Research UK’s East Street store, who has worked with the centre every year to deliver this event, said: “We’ve had tremendous support from the people of Horsham and everyone at Swan Walk in the past and we are looking forward to the 2016 challenge.”
