The charity says the lack of stock is severely affecting their income.At the same time, Save the Children shops have experienced high demand for warm clothing from shoppers. Jayne Cartwright, Save the Children’s Head of Retail, said: “we have seen a huge demand for jumpers, coats, fleeces and boots. We are struggling to keep up with demand.”The charity is also keen to support those families on a tight budget that simply can not afford to keep warm.Cartwright added: “we are encouraging shoppers who can safely get to their local Save the Children store, to hand in their unwanted garments, in particular winter warmers and pick up some bargains to help support the charity”.In an attempt to counter the drop in donations the charity is offering a Freepost delivery service from all Post Offices so that people can post donated items to them. This will remain in operation until the end of February.The charity is also inviting large retailers to donate unwanted merchandise to help make up for the shortfall in donations.www.savethechildren.org.uk/shop Tagged with: Trading Howard Lake | 9 January 2010 | News  23 total views,  1 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur.
