Shoppers are being encouraged to clear out their clutter and bag up their bric a brac ready for a donation drive to help stock Cancer Research UK’s shops.

Until Sunday September 29, people can bring quality clothes, books or accessories they no longer need along to Tesco’s Milngavie store and help raise vital funds for life-saving research.

There are a total of 300 across the UK taking part in the donation drive, led by Tesco clothing brand F&F, which aims to raise £1million worth of donated goods for the charity.

Linda Summerhayes, Cancer Research UK spokesperson in Scotland, said: “Many of us have items tucked away in cupboards and drawers that we have been meaning to donate but haven’t yet found the time. Now customers can drop off their bags when they come in to shop. By linking up with Tesco stores in this way we hope to make donating as easy and convenient as possible for people.

“It would be wonderful if everyone who popped in to a participating Tesco store next week could bring a bag of things they no longer need. All donations will be gratefully received; even a book, scarf or an old handbag filled with accessories will help us stock our shop shelves.

“Every bag received could be worth as much as £25 to Cancer Research UK and even more with Gift Aid.”
