Tsunami Goodwill Swamps Charity Shops

Inspector Sands finds an unexpected side effect of the Tsunami:

Casino Avenue

Now I have 30 coathangers more than I thought I had this morning, and a load of stuff which could be shifted at Oxfam. Seeing as I know somebody who does a bit of work there, and I’d be passing it later on. I rang up their Blackheath Village branch. You do take clothes, don’t you?

“We can’t take anything, we’ve had so many donations over the past week. The Traid branch here can’t do it as well. Could you hold onto them for a couple of weeks?”

Best leave my New Year clear out a few weeks then….
