CHARITY shops in Worcester are urging people to help boost their stock levels.

Charities right across the city have been taking part in the Charity Retail Association’s (CRA) Choose Charity Shops campaign, which hopes to increase over-the-counter donations of second hand items from the public.

With so many charity shops suffering from a shortage of stock to sell, the CRA hope the campaign will encourage people to lend their support by donating good quality unwanted clothing, books, toys and other items.

Volunteers and staff from charities including the Red Cross, St Richard's Hospice and Cats Protection joined together to show their support for the campaign, along with outgoing Mayor Dr David Tibbutt and Mayoress Jane Tibbutt.
