Charity shop to launch biggest stock appeal

Written byJAMES BRINDLE

A BURTON charity shop will launch its biggest stock donation appeal – the Great British Bag-athon – with an event in town on Monday.

The Great British Bag-athon is the British Heart Foundation (BHF) shops biggest stock donation campaign, aiming to raise one million bags of unwanted things throughout September.

Between Monday and Saturday, September 14 volunteers will be in Coopers Square Shopping Centre giving out stock donation bags and asking shoppers to fill one bag, or many, with unwanted clothes, books, homewares, toys, CDs, and DVDs, then take it to the BHF shop in High Street.

David Chadfield, centre manager at Coopers Square, said: “We are delighted to be holding a Great British Bag-athon event this year. It’s the perfect opportunity to have a clear out and donate any unwanted items, raising vital funds to support those in our community who are living with heart disease.

“You can even take on a bag filling challenge. Simply set a target and ask your friends, family, neighbours or work colleagues to pledge you bags and bring them along to our event.”
