Meadowhall has launched its ‘Bag It. Beat It’ campaign stock appeal for The British Heart Foundation.

Volunteers handed out bags to shoppers to fill with unwanted items which will go on sale in BHF shops to help fund life saving research and support those living with a heart disease.

Bags of items can be donated to the drop point in the shopping centre until Sunday, September 27.

After that bags of good quality clothes, shoes, toys, books, CDs, DVDs and bric-a-brac, can be taken to any BHF shop.

Darren Pearce, Director of Meadowhall Shopping Centre, said: “BHF is such an important charity which helps thousands of people around the UK every year who suffer from heart disease, so I want to encourage our shoppers to continue to donate their unwanted quality items and take them to our centre drop point or local BHF store.”

Last year the BHF raised over £130 million to fund scientists at more than 40 different locations in the UK.

BHF also supports families affected by a sudden diagnosis and creates communities who are able to share their advice and experiences with those who have been through similar experiences.
