Droitwich's Acorns appeals for toy donations in time for Christmas

Harry Leach 1st Nov, 2019

ACORNS charity shop in Droitwich is appealing for toy donations to make sure it is fully stocked up in time for Christmas.

The shop on St Andrew’s Street is after anything it can get its hands on, from Barbies to scooters to jigsaws.

Gary Pettit, head of retail at Acorns, said: “Our shop managers are telling us now is the perfect time for residents to have a good clear out.

“The festive period is a really busy time for us because people start to shop for toys to give as presents.

“We want to make sure our shelves are brimming with the best bargain buys and stocking fillers.”

Acorns Children’s Hospice needs £27,000 per day to provide its care and support services.

The charity’s network of over 50 shops across the West Midlands plays a key part in helping to raise those funds.

Acorns offers specialist palliative care and support for babies, children and young people with life limiting and life threatening conditions, as well as support for their families.

Gary added: “We rely on donations to keep our shops stocked.

“So if you do have any games, dolls, toys, action figures or teddies in need of a new home, please donate them to your local Acorns and help families in Droitwich this Christmas.”
