THE Butterfly Hospice in Spalding has put out a plea for help after a seeing a big fall off in donated goods.

Deputy manager Clair Bint said the Station Street shop is raising money for a hospice in the grounds of Boston’s Pilgrim Hospital, which will take people from the Spalding area when it opens its doors to patients later this year.

Miss Bint said she cannot explain why the supply of donated goods is drying up but she hopes people will do what they can to support the hospice.

She said: “We don’t seem to be getting a lot of local interest at the minute and we are getting quite desperate.”

The shop needs a wide range of goods, including men’s clothes, children’s clothes, baby clothing, electrical items, white goods, furniture, kitchen wares, household items, CDs, DVDs and books.

The shop opens from 9am to 4pm Monday to Saturday and can receive donations during those times.

Bulky goods that are too heavy for people to take to the shop can be collected by calling 01775 724590 and asking for Miss Bint or manager Sue Alexander.

Miss Bint said the shop also needs more volunteers to man it and anyone interested in sparing a little time can contact her or the manager.
