1:57pm Monday 9th September 2013 in News
A CHARITY is calling on kind-hearted people to help with their biggest stock donation appeal.
The British Heart Foundation (BHF) is looking for people to fill up their bags with unwanted things for the Great British Bag-athon to help fight heart disease.
The event was officially launched by the Mayor of Stockton, Councillor Kathryn Nelson when she donated the first bag of items today (Monday, September 9).
The charity wants donations of clothes, books, homewares, toys, CDs, and DVDs, then take it to the drop point at M&S on Teesside Shopping Park or any BHF shop.
Centre manager Mike Clarke said: “We are delighted to be holding a Great British Bag-athon event again this year. It’s the perfect opportunity to have a clear out and donate any unwanted items, raising vital funds to support those in our community who are living with heart disease.”
BHF Area Manager Martin Newton said: “We’d like to urge everyone in Stockton’s local community to get involved with this Great British Bag-athon event and help us raise bags full of unwanted things.”
