I don't change my decorations every year, but I seem to have developed a big pile of decorations I don't use anymore as i've replacing them with better or sentimental ones.

Anyone know what to do with them or are there any charities that take them?

oh by old I don't mean old broken rubbish, I mean ones that I just wont ever use again.

A local food bank may take them nearer the time to pass onto families with young children.

I would offer them at a women's refuge, might be appreciated by a family fleeing with very little. I used to volunteer at a refuge and I remember one Mum crying because she couldn't give her kids the Christmas she wanted to.

Hadn't thought of my womens aid, I give most things to them so no idea why that didn't cross my mind! Thank you, that's what I will do.

My local food bank only seem to want brand new items still in the packaging, I have offered a few things but they seem very picky! But again a good idea. Thanks.
