Help save a life with the British Heart Foundation at The Forum Shopping Centre this February  

 

The Forum Shopping Centre is delighted to announce they will be hosting British Heart Foundation (BHF) Bag It. Beat It. event on Saturday 6th February which urges the Sittingbourne community to donate bags full of their unwanted stuff to be sold in local BHF shops.  Every bag donated will help fund life saving heart research, helping over seven million people continue to fight heart disease.

 

Last year the BHF raised over £130 million from voluntary income alone. In the same year £115.5 million was committed to funding new medical research*. This enabled them to fund scientists at more than 40 different locations in the UK. This year they are hoping to raise even more with the help of Sittingbourne. The Bag It. Beat It. event will also help raise awareness of the devastating effects a sudden heart disease diagnosis can have on a family.

 

On Saturday 6th February and Saturday 13th February volunteers will be in The Forum Shopping Centre giving out stock donation bags and asking shoppers to fill a bag with unwanted clothes, shoes, books, handbags, DVDs, CDs, bric-a-brac and children’s toys then take it to the local BHF shop.

 

 

Monica Rana, Centre Manager of The Forum Shopping Centre, commented:

 

“We are delighted to be hosting a Bag It. Beat It. event this year as it helps to raise lifesaving funds and vital awareness for a fantastic cause.”

 

BHF Area Manager, Tracey Sayer, said:

 

“We’re urging everyone in Sittingbourne to have a clear out this September and donate bags of their unwanted stuff to Bag it. Beat it.

 

“People often don’t realise that the books, shoes or dress they donate to or buy from their local BHF shop actually raises vital funds and helps pay for life saving research.

 

“Every week around 2,000 families lose a loved one to heart disease, but with continued support from local people, the BHF can fight harder to reduce this figure.”
