Shoppers urged to help appeal

Have your say

LORD Mayor of Sheffield John Campbell has launched a campaign urging city residents to donate to charity shops.

He officially launched Meadowhall shopping centre’s Great British Bag-athon event by being the first person to take up the challenge and donate a bag of unwanted items to the British Heart Foundation’s stores.

The Great British Bag-athon at Meadowhall is challenging shoppers to make space for new clothes by giving away bags of old clothes and other items.

Bags can be taken back to the drop-off point in the shopping centre which will be there every Friday, Saturday and Sunday throughout September.
