Bank your clothes for Herefordshire Heartstart

Herefordshire Heartstart

Friday 22nd March 2013 – 9.55am – Chris Kowalik.

There is a new and easy way to help raise funds for a charity that is teaching lifesavings skills to thousands of people in Herefordshire.

Herefordshire Heartstart is a registered charity (no. 1082309), supported by West Midlands Ambulance Service, offering free two-hour courses to anyone aged 10 or over in techniques including CPR (cardiopulmonary resuscitation), the management of severe bleeding, loss of consciousness, choking and chest pain.

The charity needs funds to run the courses and you can help raise money by donating spare clothes, shoes, belts and handbags. They must all be clean and in good quality. You can also donate books and damaged laptops.

Items can be delivered to clothesbank.co.uk at Unit 8 Aydon Industrial Estate, Holmer Road, Hereford HR4 9UN Mon-Fri 9am-5pm or Saturdays 9.30am-4pm. The company will weigh the items and pay a monetary sum dependant on their weight. If you ask for the money to be given to Herefordshire Heartstart and quote the charity’s number, the charity will get a cheque at the end of the month. The more items you donate, the more money you raise for Herefordshire Heartstart.
