Charity looking for donations in Orpington this weekend
A charity is appealing for residents to drop off their good quality unwanted goods as one of their biggest stock appeals ever.
The British Heart Foundation will be accepting donations at Nugent Shopping Park in Cray Avenue, Orpington until Sunday (19) and then again next Thursday (23) to next Sunday (26).
Nugent Park manager Andrew Rollings said: “This is a great opportunity to have a good sort out at home in the knowledge that all your donated items will go to an excellent cause. Around 200,000 people in the UK die every year from heart disease which is why it is so important to us to host this event and give everyone in the community a chance to get involved.”
The drop off point is situated in between Marks and Spencer’s and HMV.
British Heart Foundation Area Manager, June Tumilty said: “Everyone at the British Heart Foundation, from our volunteers to our cardiac nurses, work tirelessly in the fight against heart disease. We rely on the support of local people to continue helping heart patients across the region. If everyone in Orpington fills up a bag they will be helping to save lives in their community. It really is as simple as that.”
They are looking for good quality clothing, shoes, accessories, books, toys and bric-a-brac, and any unwanted furniture and electrical items can be collected for free by calling 0844 412 5000. For more information visit bhf.org.uk/bigdonation.
