SHOPPERS can make a difference to victims of domestic abuse by donating goods and clothes.

Children's charity, Barnardo's, in Erith Riverside Shopping Centre launched an appeal last Friday running throughout September.

Visitors can pick up a bag at the centre and bring it back with quality clothes, CDs, shoes, accessories, CDs, bric-a-brac, toys and books. Children will be given a free helium balloon (while stocks last).

Money raised from the donations will help Barnardo's tackle domestic violence, sexual abuse, poverty, drug misuse and mental health.

Barnardo's store manager, Julie Fowler said: "We rely on the wonderful support from local people to continue helping our kids across the region.

"If everyone in Bexley fills up a bag they will be helping to protect the future generation in their community. It really is as simple as that."

Return the bag to Erith Barnardo's store opposite Wilkinson's before the end of Friday, September 25. Bags from home can also be used and items brought in after the deadline will be utilised.
