Hampshire residents urged to do their bit for the British Heart Foundation's one million bag appeal
THIS September, the Great British Bag-athon is back, calling for Hampshire people to join in the UK’s biggest stock donation appeal and hand over bags of unwanted things to British Heart Foundation (BHF) shops.
This year BHF shops are seeking 1 million bags to raise money for life-saving research into heart disease.
Throughout September, Hampshire BHF shops will each be aiming to pull in almost 2,000 bags and support from local people will be vital. The shop staff want unwanted clothes, shoes, toys, books, CDs and DVDs. They can be dropped off at any Hampshire BHF shop.
This year supporters can also take on a bag-filling challenge for the Great British Bag-athon. Simply set a target number of bags that you’d like to raise and ask your friends, family, neighbours or work colleagues to pledge you bags. Register online at bhf.org.uk/bagathon to find out more and see yourself in the national league table.
Preston Davies, area manager for BHF shops, says: “The launch of the Great British Bag-athon is only a few weeks away and we’d like everyone in the Hampshire area to set aside some time to clear out their wardrobe and join in the UKs biggest bag-filling event. Every bag that you fill is a bag full of life-saving research.”
Visit bhf.org.uk/bagathon for more information or pop into your local BHF shop.
