The British Heart Foundation (BHF) is appealing to the Worksop community to help make their new furniture and electrical store a success.
You can help by donating unwanted goods to the new site due to open at 2 Bridge Place, Worksop, on Tuesday 7th January.
The charity says all of the profits will help fund essential research which could create a better future for many people - from babies born with heart defects, to the millions of adults affected by heart disease.
The store will open its doors to Worksop folk very soon and hopes to be stocked with a huge range of good quality and affordable second-hand furniture items such as sofas, chairs, dining sets, beds and wardrobes plus an array of electrical items including TVs, Hi-Fi systems, washing machines, fridges and dishwashers.
For locals keen to donate, the BHF can arrange a hassle free collection for all good quality unwanted items at bhf.org.uk/free
The Worksop store is also appealing to the local community for volunteers.
It needs 250 hours of help from volunteers each week and is encouraging all local people to get in touch if they have a few hours to spare and would like to learn new skills.
Last year BHF furniture and electrical stores awarded 600 NVQs in England and Wales.
“With support from the Worksop community, we are hoping to make this new BHF furniture and electrical store a huge success and in turn raise vital funds in the fight for every heartbeat,” said area manager Chris Ward.
“We need to fill the store with donated goods before we open so we are urging people to have a clear out and book a free collection with us – it’s an easy way to get rid of unwanted bulky items whilst raising much-needed funds to support the BHF’s lifesaving research.”
“We’re also calling for any local Worksop people with spare time on their hands to join our fight for every heartbeat and volunteer with us. We have jobs to suit everyone, so please pop into the store or give us a call for more information if you can help.”
