Half-term treats from 50p for Scunthorpe kids after ‘incredible’ toy donations made at town charity shop

Generous people in Scunthorpe have helped stock a charity shop in the town with a huge assortment of toys that could provide welcome – and affordable – treats for local children this half-term holiday.

The Scope charity shop, in High Street, said the fantastic selection of toys and games could come in handy this week to help stave off boredom. And with prices from just 50p, the shop believes parents and carers will find their pick of treats from the many items on offer.

Michelle Hanson, assistant shop manager at Scope, Scunthorpe, said: “We’ve had some incredible donations of toys and games from our very generous community. With half-term here, these affordable treats, or life-savers, depending on your situation, could help keep the kids occupied.


“There’s something for all ages, from trumpets and other instruments to megaphones, trucks to dolls, books, games and DVDs. Superhero fans will love the Batman and Avengers toys.

“Prices start at 50p for balls, rattles and baby toys and go up to £30 for a doll’s house with accessories. Why not pop in for a browse and find yourself a hidden gem – I’ll take my hat off to the person who buys that trumpet.”

Michelle added. “When you donate to or purchase from our shop, you’ll be helping Scope support disabled people and their families at a time they need our services the most.” Scope charity shop is at 156 High Street, Scunthorpe DN15 6EN and is open Monday to Saturday, 9am to 5pm.
