CHARITY bosses have called on kind-hearted people in Derbyshire to donate bags of unwanted items to the British Heart Foundation as part of a national drive.
The charity aims to raise one million bags – or 2,000 bags per shop - of items in September which will then be put towards paying for life-saving research into heart disease.
Items can include CDs, DVDs, books, toys, shoes and clothes.
The charity is also calling on donors to set themselves a target number of bags they would like to raise.
Donors can register to see how they rank in the national league table by visiting bhf.org.uk/bagathon
Jayne Booysen, manager for the British Heart Foundation’s shops in Derbyshire, said: “The launch of the Great British Bag-athon is only a few weeks away and we’d like everyone in the Derbyshire area to set aside some time to clear out their wardrobe and join in the UK’s biggest bag filling event.
“Every bag that you fill is a bag full of life saving research.”
