PEOPLE in Sandbach and Alsager are being asked to spring-clean their wardrobes for charity.

Four clothing recycling banks have been placed around the towns, three in Sandbach and one in Alsager, and all the money raised from the sale of second-hand clothes and shoes will go directly to the Donna Louise Trust in Stoke.

The charity provides a children's hospice service for South Cheshire and Staf fordshire incorporating respite and palliative care.

Congleton Borough mayor Andrew Barratt made use of the bin on the Waitrose car park in Sandbach on Wednesday.

He said: 'I am delighted the borough council and primary schools provided these sites for additional clothing banks.

'Every item of clothing collected means cash for the Donna Louise Trust, helping many sick children and their families. I encourage everyone to recycle and support this worthwhile charity.'

The new clothing banks have been placed at Waitrose Car Park, Sandbach Community Primary School, Elworth Primary School and in the Alsager Civic Centre car park.
