Shop donation pick ups from Okehampton

FORCE is appealing for donated goods to sell in its shop and is offering pick-ups in Okehampton on Saturday May 21.

FORCE offers support to anyone affected by cancer at Okehampton’s Castle Ham Lodge every Wednesday (10am-4pm).

The FORCE van made its first Okehampton collections for the charity’s shop in Exeter earlier this month and it proved so successful that a speedy return has been arranged.

If you have good quality clothes, toys, games, books or small items of furniture to donate, call the FORCE Shop on 01392 271652 to arrange collection on May 21.
