Old Christmas decorations can help Bluebell Wood

VINTAGE fairies and other festive decorations are being sought by Bluebell Wood ahead of Christmas.

The children’s hospice hopes to stock up on items to sell, with ornate fairies fetching £25 to £30 on eBay. 

Sue Brown, the charity’s eBay sales administrator, said: “Giving your unwanted vintage decorations to Bluebell Wood is an all-round winner. 

“It helps people to de-clutter, raises money for a valuable cause and gives these decorations another lease of life in a new home over the festive season.

“If you’re thinking about where to shop for Christmas, Bluebell Wood’s eBay store is a treasure trove. 

“From gift ideas to quirky retro items to vintage sporting books, there's a good chance we will have just the thing you're looking for.”

The North Anston charity made more than £7,000 in the run up to last Christmas and is aiming to do even better this year.

Decorations — along with other items like toys and clothes — can be taken to your nearest Bluebell Wood shop.
