De-clutter your home, lessen household chores and raise money for charity

PEOPLE are being urged to help a hospice by reducing household chores.

The Martlets shopping centre in Burgess Hill is calling on people to have a clear out and donate unwanted goods to the St Peter and St James Hospice charity shop in the centre.

Statistics show removing excess clutter could eliminate 40% of the housework in an average home.

The shop is happy to accept a variety of goods including quality ceramics, glassware, smaller collectibles and ornaments.

The hospice, based in North Chailey, is not part of the NHS and needs to raise more than £2.6 million every year to meet its running costs.

Centre manager Ian Goodridge said: “St Peter and St James Hospice is an amazing local charity and its shop, in our centre, relies on the generosity of the local community donating good quality items. “People sometimes forget about charity shops, when disposing of their unwanted or unused belongings, even though the money that can be generated from re-selling those items goes to incredibly worthy causes. “Charity shops also provide a great opportunity to pick up a second hand bargain.”
