Thanks for supporting British Heart Foundation

I am writing to thank you and your readers for the support you’ve shown so far for South East 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.

South East 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, South East 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 South East.

Spring is the perfect time to refresh your home, so why not take advantage and book a free collection today?

For larger furniture and electrical items, book online at bhf.org.uk/free 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.
