THE British Heart Foundation in South Yorkshire launched its biggest stock appeal yet - with an urge to supporters to donate big.

The BIG Donation campaign aims to encourage people to fill up a bag with unwanted items and donate them to the charity - by dropping the bag off at a local shopping centre.

Staff hope to bring in 600,000 bags throughout September, with the Pinstone Street, Sheffield, shop alone aiming to receive over 1,000 bags. The target is to raise £22,000 to help fight heart disease. Good quality clothing, shoes, accessories, CDs, DVDs, books, toys and bric-a-brac are all needed.

Area manager Michelle Hopkins launched the appeal at Meadowhall shopping centre along with Sheffield’s Lord Mayor Coun Sylvia Dunkley. She said: “Every donation is vital and helps with lifesaving work.”

Staff at the charity’s store in Rotherham are also seeking donations, which can be dropped at Parkgate Shopping Centre to be sold in the Frederick Street shop.
