PDSA is appealing for unwanted Christmas presents to be donated to their shop in Kilburn


A charity shop in Kilburn is appealing for kind-hearted resident to donate their unwanted Christmas gifts to help raise cash for poorly pets.

The PDSA store in Kilburn High Road, is on the look-out for festive presents that failed to impress this Christmas, from socks to gift sets, books, DVDs and everything in between.

Ambrose Gamble, shop manager, said: “Christmas is a magical time of year but there are always a few gifts that don’t quite take our fancy, from ill-fitting jumpers to the unwanted book or the DVD you already own.

“But as the saying goes - one man’s junk is another man’s treasure! Your unwanted presents will suit someone else, so why not donate them to PDSA and help raise vital funds for sick and injured pets in your local area.”

The store raises funds to provide PDSA-funded veterinary treatment in the local area and welcomes donations of good quality, pre-loved items including clothing, homeware, books, toys and DVDs. Mt Gamble added: “If you’re having a sort-out to make room for all your lovely Christmas gifts please think of PDSA and make a donation.

“You can bring items to store Monday to Saturday between 9am and 5pm or call to arrange a collection.”
