A hospice is hoping that the Christmas spirit is lingering on as it asks for your unwanted presents.
St Nicholas Hospice, which has shops in Thetford and Brandon, is hoping that generous customers will donate any gifts where Santa did not quite hit the mark.
The charity’s retail team is also asking for anyone who is updating their furniture to donate older unwanted items.
Pre-loved sofas, chairs, tables, cabinets and other furnishings are on its wish list with van drivers able to pick up items.
Ian Daniels, Head of Retail, said: “If you have any unwanted gifts we would be very grateful to have them in our shops, as well as any furniture.
“If you have been clearing out your old clothes, we would be delighted to receive them. Even old and tatty textiles, which cannot be sold, can be recycled and also raise funds for the Hospice.”
