Letters to the Editor, ‘British Heart Foundation thanks Newry public’

Community, Letters to the Editor
I am writing to thank you and your readers in Newry for the support you’ve shown so far for British Heart Foundation (BHF) Northern Ireland’s Great Big Bag-athon.
BHF Northern Ireland Shops are aiming to raise 2,000 bags each of unwanted things throughout the month of September so we really need local people to join in, have a clear out and donate bags of unwanted things to the BHF Northern Ireland shop in Newry.
Taking part is easy, fill up one bag or many full with unwanted clothes, shoes, handbags, books, DVDs and homewares and donate to your local BHF Northern Ireland shop. Every bag you fill makes a real difference in the fight for every heartbeat and could be worth £20 to BHF Northern Ireland, helping to fund life-saving research into fight heart disease.
If you have lots of things to donate, why not take on a Bag-athon challenge and aim to raise anything from 5, 10 or even 15 bags for BHF Northern Ireland Shops. You can even ask friends and family to help you reach your target – the more you bag, the more researchers your heart charity can fund and the more lives they can save.
There’s still time for everyone in Newry to get involved and raise bags for the Great Big Bag-athon. Those unwanted killer heels can help give heart disease the boot. You can even book a free collection from your door by calling 0844 412 5000.
For more information on the Great Big Bag-athon visit bhf.org.uk/bagathon or pop into your local shop.
Best wishes and good luck!
Area Manager, BHF Northern Ireland Shops
