The charity Scope is urging people to donate their clothes and be in with a chance of winning a food hamper.

July is Scope’s Great Donate month and the Burnley branch, located in Parker Lane, is lending its support to a national campaign fronted by disabled model Jack Eyers who strips in a spoof version of the iconic Levi’s launderette ad.

Burnley manager Karen Hunt is hoping to reach 800 bags donated and will be handing out tombola tickets to everybody who drops one off.

“The hamper’s got everything in it from a jar of coffee to a bottle of champagne,” she said. “We will be drawing the winner at the end of the month.

“People are very good in Burnley, really good. But like anything, you can always do better. We don’t just take clothes, we take books, toys, plenty of other things.”

Each bag of goods donated helps Scope raise £20. Visit scope.org.uk/strip for more details.
