HAVE a spring clean and help Cotswold Care Hospice support people with life-limiting illnesses in Gloucestershire.

The charity is appealing for donations to stock its 14 charity shops across the county including Stroud, Stonehouse, Minchinhampton and Nailsworth.

During the Spring Clean fortnight it is appealing for clothing, books, bric-a-brac, cds and dvds, shoes and accessories and toys.

All money raised through the donations will help pay for the services provided by Cotswold Care Hospice.

Every year it supports more than 500 people in Gloucestershire.
All of its service are provided free of charge.

"A bin bag of good quality clothing could be worth £50 to us.
ThatÕs enough to help pay for two hours of care by a Hospice at Home nurse," said Joe Feeley, Head of Retail for Cotswold Care Hospice.

"We are in desperate need of donations to stock our shops.
We can't run our shops, which provide vital funding for our services, without the community's support," said Joe.
