NORTH Somerset people are being urged to detox their wardrobes and donate unwanted items to charity shops in the district.

St Peter's Hospice Shops are in need of more donations of items including winter clothes to help raise money for the Bristol-based charity.

Portishead shop manager Sue Cox said: "We are always in need of donations in our shops but now is the perfect time with people detoxing themselves to think about detoxing their wardrobes as well.

"We get lots of donations of toys especially after Christmas but what we really need is ladies clothing, and accessories particularly hats, scarves and gloves, which have been popular with the cold weather we are having."

St Peter's Hospice shops accept clothing, good quality shoes, handbags, toys, bric-a-brac, DVDs, books and music.

They are located in Portishead, Clevedon, Backwell, Nailsea and Yatton.

For collection of items call 08005 830015.
