WIGAN folk are being urged to clear-out their clutter and donate any unwanted items to charity.
British Heart Foundation (BHF) Furniture and Electrical store on Mesnes Street in the town centre is appealing to residents to recycle their homeware.
These could be items such as sofas, beds, wardrobes, TVs and small electricals.
TV presenter Andrea McLean, of Loose Women fame, has thrown her support behind the latest appeal.
She said: “I love buying new things for my home but I also love adding a piece of recycled furniture into the mix because not only does it tend to be more unique but it can also help a great cause.
“As an interiors columnist, I like to source furniture from a wide variety of places, including BHF stores.
“It’s amazing to think that by doing up your home with items from BHF stores, you are also helping to fund life-saving research into heart disease, which affects people of all ages.”
The BHF now has over 170 dedicated Furniture and Electrical stores selling a range of items, from sofas, beds and dining tables to wardrobes, TVs and toasters.
The stores are ideal for anyone looking for unique, good quality items on a budget, with sofas priced from £95, beds from £65 and washing machines from just £60.
Those who wish to donate larger items but don’t have any specialist transport to get them to the shop can book a free collection for them online at bhf.org.uk/free or call 0800 915 3000.

For those who are unable to donate, but would like to help in some other way, the store is always in need of volunteers.
