Thanks for backing bag-athon appeal
12:40pm Friday 4th October 2013 in Letters
I AM writing to thank you and your readers for the support you’ve shown so far for Hampshire British Heart Foundation (BHF) shops’ Great British Bag-athon.
BHF shops are aiming to raise one million bags of unwanted things so we really need the Hampshire community to join in, have a clear-out and donate bags of unwanted things.
Taking part is easy; fill up one bag or many with unwanted clothes, shoes, handbags, books, DVDs and homewares and donate to your local BHF shop.
Every bag you fill makes a real difference in the fight for every heartbeat and could be worth £20 to the BHF, helping to fund life-saving research into heart disease.
If you have lots of things to donate, why not take on a Bag-athon challenge and aim to raise anything from five, ten or even 15 bags for Hampshire BHF shops?
You can even ask friends and family to help you reach your target – the more you bag, the more researchers the BHF can fund and the more lives they can save.
There’s still time for everyone in Hampshire to get involved and raise bags for the Great British Bag-athon.
Those unwanted killer heels can help give heart disease the boot. You can even book a free collection by calling 0844 412 5000. For more information visit bhf.org.
