AGE UK is calling on Crewe and Nantwich residents to donate their unwanted Christmas gifts and help support vulnerable pensioners.

Rather than throwing them out or leaving unwanted Christmas presents to gather dust at the back of the wardrobe, Age UK is urging people to give back and donate any unwanted gifts to their local shop, in Market Street, Crewe, or Pepper Street, Nantwich.

The charity is also encouraging people to make their donation worth an extra 25 per cent by signing up to Gift Aid.

Jayne Tunstall, shop manager at Age UK Nantwich, said: “It can be difficult knowing what do to with gifts that will never be used, however by donating unwanted Christmas presents or old items to our shop people will be helping a great cause.

“You can also help us raise even more by signing up to Gift Aid, it really couldn’t be easier. You only need to do it once and our staff will be on hand to help you do so.

“Not only could they be another person’s treasure, your donations will also help Age UK raise much-needed funds to help brighten up 2018 for an older person.”
