If some of your Christmas gifts were wide of the mark, donate them to LEAH where they can be put to good use by raising money for home tuition or community classes. While you’re at it, perhaps you could also reflect on those items languishing at the back of the cupboard or in the loft that are simply begging to be recycled.

Last year our fundraisers made over £500 from the sale of unwanted gifts and raffle tickets at the Ham Parade Market and they aim to do even better at the Surbiton Farmers' Market on Maple Road, on Saturday 18 May between 9am and 1pm.

The items should be unused and in good working order. We’re steering clear of electrical appliances. You can drop off whatever you have at LEAH’s office or call and ask for us to arrange for your items to be collected.
