Heartfelt help from Darwen MP
11:16am Thursday 31st January 2013 in News
DARWEN MP Jake Berry will be volunteering at the town’s British Heart Foundation Shop this weekend.
The politician is helping out at the Market Street store in a bid to raise awareness of National Heart Month and the British Heart Foundation’s “Rock up in Red” campaign.
Mr Berry said: “Heart and circulatory disease are the country’s biggest killer, so it’s vital that we all do our bit to help. I’ll be volunteering in the shop on Saturday and it would be great to see as many Darreners as possible coming along to support the start of British Heart Month.”
The shop is also looking for good quality donations of furniture and electrical items, clothes for women, men and children, books, shoes and handbags, accessories, CDs and DVDs, children’s toys and homeware.
You can drop off goods at your local shop, fill a doorstep donation bag or book a free collection for furniture and large electrical items.
