Glut of charity bags

HAS anyone noticed how many charity bags have come through their door since Christmas?

Last week, we received our fourth in 18 days. We managed to find a few unwanted items for the first two collections, but there is only so much we can give away in such a short period of time.

Do charities not liaise with one another before they launch their bag campaigns?

Surely it would be beneficial for them to stagger their collections and give us all a bit of time to gather our “unwanted items”?
