Wakefield Hospice is asking people to donate clothes and furniture during the winter period.

It says stocks are low for its stores and its warehosue and it may struggle to cope with demand after it received fewer donations than usual for the time of year.

Hillary Trotter, Wakefield Hospice’s retail area manager, said: “We have been finding it very difficult. Our winter stock rails are empty and it’s only the start of winter.”

Furniture and winter clothes can be dropped off at any of the hospice’s stores.
