Each year thousands of unwanted Christmas presents are either put at the back of a cupboard or thrown to waste. However, the Hospice can reuse unwanted gifts to help raise valuable funds through raffles at their events.

So, if three bottles of wine and four boxes of chocolates are a few treats too many, take them to the Hospice at 25 Upper Maze Hill, St Leonards, or your nearest Hospice shop, marked for the attention of the Fundraising team.

Alternatively Tesco Extra, Church Wood Drive, Hollington, and Sainsbury’s, John Macadam Way, St Leonards have allocated collection points in their stores, from Tuesday December 27 until the end of January.
