Christmas gift ideas in aid of local charity

A leading local charity is reminding people looking for last minute Christmas gifts and decorations that its seven fundraising shops across the West Midlands will be open until Christmas Eve.

Beacon has a wide range of gifts and decorations for sale at its shops in Wolverhampton, Bilston, Bloxwich, Wednesbury, Cannock, Halesowen and the centre in Sedgley – all raising much needed funds to support visually impaired people across the Black Country and South Staffordshire.

Lucy Barton, from Beacon, said: “Our shops have a great selection of gifts on offer, including gorgeous crockery and coasters, as well as novelty mugs, table cloths and ornaments.

“We also have a range of brand new decorative items for the home, as well as Christmas cards, baubles and even artificial Christmas trees.

“And of course, not only will any of these gifts make someone’s day at Christmas, you will also get the feel-good factor from knowing that your purchase is helping to support and enrich the life of someone within with sight loss the West Midlands community.

“Every penny raised enables Beacon to help visually impaired local people live fuller and more independent lives.”

All money raised from Beacon’s charity shops supports a full range of facilities and support for visually impaired people, including a mix of residential, day care and community services.

More than 3,000 people in the community receive support from a team of dedicated outreach workers and social groups can meet at the Sedgley centre to participate in arts and crafts, music, fitness and IT sessions.
