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.
