Mental health charity calls for donations of old clothes

Have your say

A mental health charity is urging supporters to have a clear-out and donate their unwanted items to raise funds.

The Mind shop on Devonshire Street in Sheffield city centre has issued an urgent plea for donations.

Andrew Vale, managing director of Mind shops, said: “This year stock is especially low - possibly as in the post-recession environment people are holding on to old items rather than donating.”

But he urged: “By donating you are supporting the one in four people who will experience mental distress this year.”
