Alan Carr launches the UK's biggest ever stock appeal for the British Heart Foundation
"Alan Carr today launched the British Heart Foundation's BIG Donation - the UK's biggest ever stock appeal - aiming to raise more than 350,000 bags of donated items in just 30 days. The comedian and the nation's heart charity are challenging the Great British public to donate their unwanted good quality items to help reach its target. Last year BHF Shops contributed GBP15 million to help in the fight against heart disease. But this year, BHF Shops needs your help in The BIG Donation to help us beat that figure. Speaking of his involvement Alan said: "I am absolutely thrilled to be involved with the British Heart Foundation's 'BIG Donation' appeal and you can do your bit too. "We need you to go through your wardrobes and fill a donation bag with your unwanted, clean clothes, no tat please. "Those chinos with the marmite stains can stay where they are thank you very much. Once you've filled your bag take it to your local shop or a designated drop off point. Everyone's a winner!!"
