Charity spring clear out

Have your say

I AM writing to thank readers for the support you’ve shown so far for North West British Heart Foundation (BHF) shops Spring Clear Out campaign.

To mark the official start of spring, BHF shops recreated Van Gogh’s iconic tulips image from donated stock to encourage locals to think about having a clear out.

Using a quarter of a tonne of donated items, the creation measured 20m x 20m and included everything from clothes, shoes and books to toasters, rugs and even some sofas!

North West BHF shops are encouraging people to de-clutter their home this spring and donate all their unwanted things using its free collection service. Whether you’ve got a few bags of clothes or a full three piece suite, North West BHF shops will pick up everything for free.

From defibrillators to heart support groups, your donated items will help raise vital funds to fight heart disease in the North West.

For larger furniture and electrical items, book online at: or call 0800 915 3000 to arrange a collection for any items, from unwanted books, shoes and CDs to sofas and TVs.

Every penny of profit raised from your unwanted items will help the BHF continue its fight for every heartbeat and fund life-saving research.
