PEOPLE in Portishead are being asked to dig out their unwanted clothes and help raise money to extend the town's Christmas lights.

The town's Christmas lights committee has launched its annual textiles recycling campaign in an attempt to raise £2,000 to allow it to extend the illuminations in 2013.

This year it is hoped to extend the lights to cover the youth centre, scout hut and Brunel Court.

The campaign will run through January and February and volunteers will be available to collect the unwanted items from people's homes.

Those wanting to donate goods - from old bedding, curtains, clothes, shoes or handbags -  can also take them to Portishead Youth Centre.

The goods will be taken to Bristol Textile Recyclers and the committee will be paid per kilo of textiles donated and those  items in good condition will be redistributed to people in need.

Last year more than three tonnes of clothing was collected in Portishead, raising £2,160 for the lights.

People wanting to find out more can call Dennis on 01275 843646 to arrange collection.
