People are being reminded that charity shops are shut because of lockdown after donations were left covered in snow outside a Norfolk store.
Items have been left outside the Sue Ryder furniture shop on Bridge Street in Downham Market despite notices asking people not to.
Martin Evans, who regularly walks past the charity shop, discovered the donations on Monday, February 8 while out on his exercise.
He said he shared it on Facebook to highlight that people were ignoring signs on the entrance doors, which was "especially sad to see" on Monday
He added: "The amount of boxes had increased and there were clearly clothes and books ruined by the snow and wet weather."
