The Red Cross is asking for people to donate wintry clothes to its Miranda store to meet high demand.

Red Cross head of retail Richard Wood said there was a big need for coats, jackets, jumpers, boots, scarves and beanies in good condition. 

“Anything warm and woolly in good condition is greatly appreciated. If it’s the kind of thing you’d give to a friend then it’s something we’d love,” he said.

“If you have some spare time over the weekend simply collect any winter clothing you no longer need and visit one of our stores to donate to help give them a new lease on life.”

He said it would help meet high demand by shoppers and raise funds for the charity.

Red Cross has over 150 op-shops in Australia. Money raised through the op-shops helps the Red Cross run vital support services, helping people when times are tough around Australia and overseas.

The Miranda store opened last year and is located at 57 Kiora Rd, in the old Westpac bank.

It is the only Red Cross op-shop in the Sutherland Shire.
