THE Irish Wheelchair Association charity shop at John Street in Ardee is asking people not to throw out items it can use.
Many people are throwing out items that can be recycled, so the shop is appealing for people not to forget this.
“We can accept clothes, books and shoes in any condition,” said manager Karen Glass. “We can also take household items in good condition.”
The Ardee shop is the first of its kind to be opened by the Irish Wheelchair Association in the North East.
It sells a wide variety of used items including, clothes, shoes, books, and even small pieces of furniture. “We are encouraging people to bring in any unwanted items,” said Karen.
“Any items that that we can’t use are taken away by a recycling company and the money is then donated to the Irish Wheelchair Association.
“So never throw anything out. It will always be of use to us in one way or another.
“The Irish Wheelchair Association have a total of ten shops in the country. The nearest to us is in the south of the provence down in Wexford.”
The purpose of the shop is to help fund the services of the Irish Wheelchair Association, so remember they can use what you don’t want.
