Pupil power at St Martin's School in Northwood, has made a difference to Peace Hospice Care.

Following a talk in the school assembly from Peace Hospice Care Director of Trading, Steve Rose, and Events and Community Officer, Charlotte Harrison, the eager young students were urged to turn out their wardrobes and cupboards at home and donate clothing to the Hospice.

Within a week, a huge haul of  one hundred bags of secondhand clothes had been gathered for resale at the Hospice charity shops.

Peace Hospice Care Director of Trading, Steve Rose, said, 'we were astounded by the huge volume of clothes collected by the children. Their donations look set to raise around £2,500.  The children were also very interested to find out about the work of the Hospice. It was very encouraging to be able to involve such young members of our community.  We thank them all.'

If you have clothes to donate or wish to shop for a bargain, visit one of our charity shops.www.peacehospice.co.uk/page.asp?thepageID=87
