Your old clothes, textiles and bedding could help change the life of a little girl in Weymouth.

9 month old Scarlett Russ has cystic fibrosis.

Her family needs to raise £10,000 to buy her a special vest which will help her breathe more easily.

Family friend Reg Strathearn is collecting old clothes which he plans to turn into cash.

He's taking them to a company in Kent which will pay £500 per tonne.

If you have clothes you'd like to donate to Reg - you can find out more about their appeal on facebook at Scarletts Starletts or by clicking here.
