I am writing to thank you and your readers support for the British Heart Foundation’s (BHF) South East Shops’ Great British Bag-athon.
The campaign, which took place throughout September, was a huge success and we’re very grateful to the South East community for joining in and donating so many bags full of lovely things. We had an amazing response throughout September with over 80,240 bags donated from the South East and with each bag on average raising £20, this could be worth a possible £1,604,800. One hundred per cent of all the profits raised will go on to help the fight against the nation’s biggest killer, heart disease.
Thanks to the tremendous contribution from the South East we have been able to raise over 570,000 bags across the UK as a whole – this could be worth a possible £11,400,000!
BHF South East Shops are always in need of donations and it doesn’t have to be just clothes – good quality CDs, DVDs, books, toys and ornaments are all welcome.
