A CHARITY shop in Huddersfield is appealing for more stock.
Having hit an all-time low, staff working at Age UK in Huddersfield are struggling to fill the shelves of the popular charity shop.
Donations of clothing, cookware and books have plummeted dramatically in the last three months.
Shop manager Mandy May said that quality clothing for men, women and children and crockery, books, CDs and DVDs were desperately needed.
She said: “Our store room is usually piled high, but now it’s almost empty.
“Although this is usually a good thing as it means we have sold what we had, we cannot cope with the increasing demand if nothing else comes in, we simply can’t sell fresh air.
“Without continued donations of everything from clothing to cookware, Age UK cannot continue its vital work to help improve the lives of older people across the country.
“Each time you donate stock to Age UK please Gift Aid it, as they give us an extra 25p for every pound we make.
“Everything we cannot sell gets recycled so nothing goes to waste,” said Mandy May.
On an average day 250 items are on display at Age UK but they have declined to 70.
