BHF thanks

First published in Letters

I AM writing to thank readers for the support so far for British Heart Foundation (BHF) shops’ Spring Clear Out campaign.

To mark the official start of spring, we’ve recreated Van Gogh’s iconic tulips image from donated stock to encourage people to think about having a clear out. Using a quarter of a tonne of donated items, the creation measured 20m x 20m and included everything from clothes, shoes and books to toasters, rugs and even some sofas.

We are encouraging people to de-clutter their home this spring and donate all their unwanted things using its free collection service. Whether you’ve got a few bags of clothes or a full three piece suite, our shops will pick up everything for free.

Spring is the perfect time to refresh your home so why not take advantage and book a free collection today? For larger furniture and electrical items, book online at: or call 0800 915 3000 to arrange a collection for any items, from unwanted books, shoes and CDs to sofas and TVs. Every penny of profit raised from your unwanted items will help the BHF continue its fight for every heartbeat and fund life-saving research.
