Appeal for donations to charity

By Sue Austin | Chirk | News | Published:

A café at the heart of the Chirk community is to play host to a second ‘Donate Don’t Dump’ event to help residents declutter any unwanted, quality items that still have a useful life.

Caffi Wylfa, the social enterprise run cafe on Castle Road, is once again throwing its support behind Nightingale House Hospice, Wrexham, helping those with life-limiting illnesses.

Anybody wanting to donate their unused items can drop them off at Caffi Wylfa on January 22 between 10am and 3.30pm.

The hospice says that all it asks is that items are of good quality - and welcome donations such as clothes, furniture, electrical goods and bric-a-brac. The re-sale of donated items through the ‘Nightingales’ retail outlets provide much-needed funds so the hospice can continue to provide free specialist care to patients within its catchment area.

Caffi Wylfa manager, Chris Davies, said: “We had a great response to the last Donate Don’t Dump day back in November. Chirk residents really took advantage of the opportunity to donate before Christmas and the van was jam-packed with so many generous donations.

“We felt that it would be a great opportunity to help the hospice again as many people are in the mood to have a post-Christmas clear out in January, so I am confident they will be as generous again this time.”

The cafe is also giving away a free coffee with every cake purchased for anyone who turns up and donates on the day.
