FAMILIES in Helston are being asked to recycle their unwanted children's clothes to help raise funds for Little Harbour, a new children's hospice near St Austell.

Helston-based organic children's clothing firm Frugi has joined with Little Steps, the Children's Hospice South West's new charity store in Truro.

Families are being asked to donate toys, clothes and equipment to the collection point at Frugi's sample sale event on December 9, 10am to noon.

Donations will be taken to Little Steps, which sells a range of quality new and nearly new goods for the under fives.

Little Steps collects goods from train sets to high chairs, children's clothes to pushchairs, books, games and more.

Lucy Jewson, Frugi co-founder, said: "We're so proud to be able to support this amazing charity which gives invaluable support to such precious lives for children across our region. And what a great way to re-purpose outgrown baby things too."

Frugi also donates 1 per cent of sales to two grassroots charities and supports an orphanage in India, so every purchase helps other charities too.
