Bags of reasons for a declutter
Every single month 300 people in Northern Ireland lose their life to heart and circulatory disease. Money raised in the shop will support the charity’s work in Northern Ireland. They currently invest more than £2.5million on research into cardiovascular disease at Queen’s University.
BHF NI’s invaluable support has allowed more than 65 per cent of post primary schools in Northern Ireland to do CPR training using their training kits and also helps fund the Mile Frost nurse in the City Hospital who supports families undergoing genetic testing for inherited heart conditions.
Every item bought at a BHF shop has helped fund the research that has led to the development of the portable defibrillator, advances in pacemakers, transplant surgery and the development of cholesterol lowering statins.
Billy Johnstone, British Heart Foundation Area Manager said:
‘After the Primark fire British Heart Foundation has relocated to Fountain Street from it’s old Castle Street location. The new shop sells clothing, footwear, accessories, books, music and entertainment and small housewares.
We are always looking for stock to sell and would welcome any support from local businesses, limited companies can even claim back tax on the value of any donation.
We also offer a free pick up from homes in and around Belfast, simply call 028 9024 5838 and we will do the rest. We would love to have some new partners in the city and help with healthy heart information and CPR training for you and your teams.’
To arrange a collection of your donated stock for the new Belfast shop contact the BHF NI shop on 028 9024 5838 or it can be dropped off directly at the new shop at 23 Fountain Street.
