Couple hope to clean up for donkeys' aid
A PENSIONER who feels she was pressured into buying a £1,595 vacuum cleaner five years ago wants to sell it to raise money for charity.
Doris Morley, 79, and husband Eric, 87, bought a vacuum cleaner from a "pushy salesman" after they were told they had "won" a free carpet shampoo and were unable to get rid of the salesman who arrived.
"Now I realise that I probably didn't win anything – it was just an excuse for them to get in the door. Once he was in, he just would not go away," she said.
However, it is too heavy for Doris or Eric and they have only used it a handful of times since they bought it for £1,595 in 2007.

The couple are now hoping to sell it to raise money for Bransby, a rescue centre for horses and donkeys near Lincoln to which Doris is a regular contributor.
"I felt like I was hoodwinked into buying it. It's no good to us but it might be useful for people who have a large house or run a business – it does all sorts.
"It has been in my conservatory unused for so long that I thought I may as well sell it and put some of the money to good use," added Doris.
