Spring clean your house and help British Heart Foundation save lives
A charity has appealed to residents in the borough to donate unwanted household goods so it can continue lifesaving work.
The British Heart Foundation’s furniture and electrical store in Cranbrook Road, Ilford is urging people to have a seasonal clear out and will pick up items for free if they are in good condition.
The store needs an array of quality furniture and electrical appliances including sofas, dining tables, chairs, beds, wardrobes, TVs and washing machines.
Smaller items like kettles, microwaves toasters and irons are also in demand and residents are asked to bring these into the shop.
All funds raised go to the foundation which works to reduce cardiovascular disease in the UK.
Since the store opened in October last year, 415 free collections have been booked online raising over �49,800 for the nation’s heart charity.
Area Manager, Ruth Sheed said: “Whether you have a bed, coffee table, armchair or chest of drawers to donate, our free collection service provides a practical solution for unwanted items that will help save lives.”
