Help us collect for the Heart Foundation

The team at the British Heart Foundation (BHF) Northern Ireland shops are appealing to local people to search through their wardrobes and scour their homes for any unwanted, good quality summer clothing; handbags; shoes; books; DVDs; CDs and bric-a-brac - all of which will help your heart charity continue its life-saving work in Northern Ireland.

Donations are the lifeblood of BHF Northern Ireland shops - we sell over 90,000 items a day across the UK. Last year our shops raised over £204,000 in Northern Ireland in the fight against heart disease. A remarkable achievement, which couldn't have been reached without your donations.

I'm urging local people pop into their BHF Northern Ireland shop with their unwanted items. Just nine books can fund a BHF Northern Ireland heart researcher's time for an hour - it's easy to make a difference.

Pop in and see us for more information.
