BHF letter wk50

I am writing to thank you and your readers for your support for the British Heart Foundation’s (BHF) South West Shops’ Great British Bag-athon.

The campaign, which took place throughout September, was a huge success and we’re very grateful to the South West community for joining in and donating so many bags full of lovely things. We had an amazing response throughout September and thanks to the tremendous contribution from the South West we have been able to raise over 570,000 bags across the UK as a whole – this could be worth a possible �11,400,000!

BHF South West Shops are always in need of donations and it doesn’t have to be just clothes – good quality CDs, DVDs, books, toys and ornaments are all welcome.

In addition, if you are planning a house clearout our Furniture & Electrical stores are always in need of good quality homeware.

For those of you that have bulky items to donate or large numbers of bags, you can also book a free collection from your door by calling 0844 412 5000.
