SUE Ryder – which runs Manorlands hospice at Oxenhope – is urging people to have a spring clean and help the charity at the same time.

The organisation is appealing for people to donate items that can be sold through its shops to raise funds.

Goods can be taken to any of the charity's outlets, or in the case of furniture, collected for free.

Glynn Taylor, Sue Ryder's regional retail manager, says: "With Easter just around the corner now I think it’s safe to say that spring has sprung, but most of us will still have the remnants of winter lurking in our drawers, cupboards and living spaces!

"A good clear out has many benefits for your home, health and mind. Not only will you experience those positive gains, but by donating you’ll also cut down on waste and help support people dealing with grief or facing a terminal illness."

Sue Ryder's Keighley shops are located in Cavendish Street and at the Airedale Shopping Centre and Alston Retail Park.

The charity also has an outlet in Bridgehouse Lane, Haworth.

People can donate items including quality clothes, household goods, electricals, bric-a-brac, books, toys, accessories and collectibles.
