BHF bag-a-thon a great success
PEOPLE in Salisbury donated 171 bags of items to be sold during a bag-a-thon held at the British Heart Foundation shop in the Maltings.
The donated items will now go on to be sold in local charity shops and could generate up to £3,420 to help fund life-saving research.
The Great British Bag-athon is BHF shops biggest stock donation appeal, aiming to raise a million bags of unwanted things throughout September.
Maltings centre manager Bill McConnell said: “We are delighted that 171 bags were filled and donated to the Great British Bag-athon by the Salisbury community and would like to say a big thank you. The profits raised will go straight into the fight against heart disease by funding vital, life-saving research.”
Donations are always needed and people can take their unwanted clothes, shoes toys, books, CDs, DVDs and homewares to the store.
