4:00pm Saturday 14th September 2013 in News
Residents can get rid of unwanted items at a charity collection scheme in Banbury this weekend.
Following last weekend’s collection, the British Heart Foundation’s Great British Bag-athon will take place again at Castle Quay Shopping Centre today and tomorrow from 9am to 6pm. Items sought include clothes, shoes, toys, books, CDs, DVDs etc and people can take them to the drop point in the centre or straight to the BHF shop.
The Mayor of Banbury, Nicholas Turner, dropped by to lend his support on Saturday, pictured right.
Centre manager Paul Jackson said: “We’d like to encourage everyone in the Banbury community to join in Britain’s biggest bag filling event and help fund lifesaving research into heart disease.
“Simply fill up one bag, or many, and help the BHF fight for every heartbeat.”
