A Bath charity shop is encouraging people to pick up the perfect present while supporting vulnerable children this Christmas.
The Barnardo’s store in Shaftesbury Road, Oldfield Park, is now displaying its latest collection of seasonal gifts.
Profits support the charity’s work with some of the UK’s most vulnerable and disadvantaged children and young people.
Barnardo’s manager Karen James said: “Aside from the usual pre-loved items which are generously donated by local supporters, we also receive brand-new stock throughout the year.
“We’ve just received a wonderful collection of potential gifts which are sure to brighten a child’s face on Christmas morning.
“Items include indoor and outdoor play-mats, play-dough, kaleidoscopes and balloon modelling kits.
“We also have wrapping paper, diaries, decorations, stockings, greeting cards, gift tags, calendars, bows and bags.
“There are also plenty of other festive treats including Christmas-themed socks, scented candles, bath fizzers and hand soaps.
“There’s something for everyone – and the best thing is that every purchase helps to support the charity’s life-changing work with young carers, care-leavers, victims of abuse and exploitation, and other vulnerable groups.”
The Barnardo’s store is open Monday-Saturday from 9.30am-5pm and on Sundays from 10am-4pm.
It always welcomes donations of good-quality clothes, books, toys, games, accessories and bric-a-brac, as well as offers of help from volunteers.
Last year Barnardo’s supported nearly 300,000 children, young people, parents and carers.
