VOLUNTEERS for a Burton charity shop have been out in force in a town shopping centre as they launched a major stock donation appeal.
The Great British Bag-athon has been launched by the British Heart Foundation (BHF) and its High Street shop in Burton is taking part.
Volunteers have been in Coopers Square shopping centre urging the community to join in and fill up bags full of unwanted things to help fight heart disease.
BHF area manager, Jo Bridgwood, said: “We’d like to urge everyone in Burton’s local community to get involved with this Great British Bag-athon event and help us raise bags full of unwanted things.
“This event can really help us reach our target of raising one million bags throughout August and September.
“Coronary Heart Disease is the UK’s single biggest killer and every bag you fill is a bag full of lifesaving research. Every donation really makes a difference.”
