Parents in Lowestoft are being urged to 'detox their toy box' in the run-up to Christmas and donate quality toys and games to a children's charity.
All profits raised from the sale of toys at the Lowestoft Barnardo's store at 58 London Road North in the town centre will be used to help support vulnerable children, young people and families across the region.
As well as pre-loved quality toys, the charity is also keen to receive donations of unused toys and games, which often prove popular when customers are looking for presents at reasonable prices for Christmas.
Andy Burr, area business manager for Barnardo's who oversees the running of the Lowestoft store said: 'We sell a lot of toys and games at this time of the year and are really grateful for the generous donations from local people. It's amazing what people unearth when they start looking in the back of cupboard and at the bottom of the toy box - it's a good excuse to have a clear out at home.
'We'd like to thank all of our customers and donors for their continued support, which really does make a difference to so many local children's lives.'
