A CHARITY is launching a Green Santa appeal for any unwanted Christmas gifts.

Helpers at the WGC-based Isabal Hospice helpers say they can be used as raffle or auction prizes throughout the fundraising year.

Fundraising director Lisa Seccombe said: "We have called it a Green Santa Appeal because we think it is a great idea for people to recycle any Christmas presents they don't want or don't have a need for.

"We are appealing to any teachers who may have lots of gifts that they couldn't possibly use, slimming club members with chocolate they would rather not have hanging around to tempt them or even businesses that are unable to accept gifts like bottles of wine.

"We have hundreds of fundraising events throughout the year and are always looking for good quality prizes to be used in our raffles and auctions."

Donations can be brought to the Isabel Hospice head office at 61 Bridge Road East, WGC, or taken to any of the charity's 13 shops across the area.

Mark them for the Green Santa Appeal.
