BOOKS and clothes were donated by Island MP Andrew Turner, as part of a campaign to raise awareness of charity shops.
Mr Turner visited Shanklin’s British Heart Foundation and the Earl Mountbatten Hospice’s Newport warehouse, as part of the nationwide Choose Charity Shops campaign.
Mr Turner and his staff donated items to both organisations and he met staff and volunteers involved.
He said: "Most charities are short of money and donating unwanted items for them to sell is a great and easy way to help your favourite charity.
"Everyone has probably got items in their wardrobes, cupboards and garages which they don’t want.
"Donating them to charity is a win-win situation as people can recycle unwanted goods while raising money for a worthwhile cause."
