Charity plea for goods to boost stocks
CHARITY shops have launched an appeal for unwanted clothing to boost stocks.
British Heart Foundation (BHF) shops in the city centre and Mutley are asking for people to support the charity's Great British Bag-athon.
It comes as a BHF survey reveals 38 per cent of people in the South West admit they own clothes that do not suit them.
The study also showed that 23 per cent of people from the region said their partner wears clothes that do not suit them.
Annita Riddle, BHF shops regional manager, said: "We're all guilty of hanging on to clothes that we've fallen out of love with, which is why this September we are encouraging everyone to take part in the Great British Bag-athon by filling a bag and donating items that we know we'll never wear again. Just one bag of unwanted items is worth £20 in the fight against heart disease, which makes a real difference."
Visit a BHF shop at 60 Cornwall Street and 95 Mutley Plain or log on to bhf.org.uk/bagathon for more information.
