    Over the past month we have been clearing an elderly relatives house.

    We have many boxes of bric a brac, china, pictures etc which are too good for the tip and we wanted to donate to Charity.

    We haven't been able to find a Charity shop in Stafford willing to take any items. They all say they are inundated with items after only just re opening.

    It is a shame as eventually , not through lack of trying, it will all end up at the tip.

    Does anyone know anywhere that may take any?

    PDSA had a sign up saying they were taking donations, and someone took some in whilst I was in there on Saturday.

    We have the same problem at work, we have donation tubs for food which we collect for the Salvation Army, while we are extremely grateful of donations, out of date food is just not acceptable, people seem to think they can empty out their kitchens of out of date food and dump it in our collection. We also have 2 people who regularly put Fresh food items (mostly bread & cheese) in there. It doesn't matter is the use by date on the cheese is a month in advance, once its been out of the fridge for 20+ minutes it can't be used and ends up being disposed of. We live in hope of 'catching' the 2 people, just so we can let them know how grateful we are, but they are wasting their money which could be put to so much better use....
