People can help the children and young people who use Rainbows this festive season by donating their unwanted gifts to our shops.

We have shops in Loughborough, Melton, Blaby, Market Harborough, Beeston and Matlock and we are asking people to donate those oversized jumpers, surplus toys and duplicate gifts received at Christmas.

Karen Bilsby, Head of Retail for Rainbows shops, said: “Santa may have got it a bit wrong this year and people don’t need to feel guilty about not liking a gift or hanging on to something they just won’t use. Every year we’re grateful for people’s unwanted gifts, which are often the perfect item for someone else. And of course, we are ever grateful for your old items of clothing, toys etc to make way for your new ones.

“Donating presents to Rainbows helps you make space in your cupboards, and helps us raise money for local children and their families,” added Karen. “And if you are a UK taxpayer, your donation could be worth 25% more at no cost to you thanks to gift aid – please ask for more details in store.”
