Donates gifts you do not need

OVERGATE Hospice is appealing for unwanted Christmas presents.

"If you have an unwanted gift we would really appreciate it – for use as raffle prizes, in a hamper or auction at one of our events, or alternatively through our charity shops," said spokeswoman Caroline Bone.

"We have a lot of events that are happening over the next few months to celebrate our `30th Year of Care` and all donations will be put to good use".

The hospice has to raise over 1.9 million annually to keep its services going.

Donations can be taken to Overgate on Hullen Edge Road, Elland, or one of its nine charity shops in Calderdale.

Alternatively call the fundraising team on 01422 387120.
