British Heart Foundation Burnley shop appeals for preloved donations
The British Heart Foundation Burnley shop is appealing for people to bring in their preloved items to support the charity’s recovery from coronavirus.
The St James' Street shop re-opened on Monday after months of closures, and is once again raising funds for life-saving research.
Volunteers are now urgently asking the community to support the charity by donating good quality items such as clothing, handbags, shoes and books.
Every item sold will be turned into funds for research that could help transform the lives of those in the area living with heart and circulatory diseases.
As they reopen, BHF shops and stores have measures in place to keep staff, volunteers and customers safe. This includes social distancing on the shop floor, protective equipment for staff and volunteers and screens at till points. Customers can donate items at Covid-secure donation points set up at BHF shop entrances.
For larger donations to BHF home stores, donors can book a free collection service online or by calling their local shop. All pick-ups are Covid-secure in line with Government social distancing guidelines.
For those not ready to hit the high-street, the charity’s postal donation service is also available for smaller, quality items – simply print off a label and take your items to your local drop off point.
Alternatively, people can shop a wide range of items via the BHF eBay shop.
