British Heart Foundation Northern Ireland (BHF NI) is appealing to local people to kick start their 2024 by having a declutter and donate items to their Lisburn store.

The charity is in urgent need of stock so whether it’s a jumper that doesn’t fit, a game you won’t play, or a book you already have, BHF NI will welcome any generous donations which can be resold to fund lifesaving research.

The BHF gladly receives any quality items including clothing, jewellery, books, and games, and saves over 56,000 tonnes of goods from going to landfill every year.

Courtney Hagans, manager of British Heart Foundation shop in Lisburn said:“This January, I’ll be decluttering and donating any unwanted items to our shop and I would encourage people in Lisburn to do the same.

"Donating to charity and having a clear out can make you feel good and help you escape the January blues.

“With prices continuing to rise, it’s important to keep our charity shop shelves stocked for those who might need them. So, if there are any Christmas gifts lying around that you won’t use, consider donating them to us.”

Maureen McElhatton Area Retail Manager for British Heart Foundation Northern Ireland added: “At BHF NI, we depend on the generous donations from the public to continue to fund our lifesaving research.

“If you have any items that you want to donate, simply drop them off at your local shop.”
