Parents are being urged to detox their toy box in the run-up to Christmas and donate toys and games to Barnardo’s.

All profits raised from the sale of toys at the charity’s shops in St John’s Street, Bury St Edmunds; North Street, Sudbury; and the Meadow Centre, in Stowmarket; will be used to help support vulnerable children, young people and families across the region.

As well as pre-loved quality toys, the charity is also keen to receive donations of unused toys and games, which often prove popular in the run up to Christmas when customers are looking for presents at reasonable prices.

Andy Burr, area business manager for Barnardo’s who oversees the running of the three stores, said:

“We sell a lot of toys and games at this time of the year and are really grateful for the generous donations from local people. It’s amazing what people unearth when they start looking in the back of cupboard and at the bottom of the toy box - it’s a good excuse to have a clear out at home.”
