A SUPERMARKET is giving away more than a dozen mannequins to anyone who needs one.

The Sainsbury's in Victoria Road, Darlington, says it has a variety of men, women, children and baby models which are surplus to requirements and available to give away to a good home.

Jacqui Kilbride, Tu clothing manager, said: "We want to help small businesses, charities or anyone in our community.

"They say one man’s waste is another man’s treasure.”

The mannequins were offered to Darlington College, but were not needed by anyone there.

They are free and available by calling Sainsbury's on 01325 465915, option five.

Alternatively, anyone who wants one can find out more by emailing Manager.darlington@sainsburys.co.uk for viewing and collection.
