REALITY TV star Calum Best, has donated piles of his second-hand clothes to the Clapham Junction British Heart Foundation (BHF) shop.
Bags of Calum’s new and pre-worn clothes are now available to shoppers to raise cash for BHF’s new Bag it. Beat it. campaign.
Calum, the son the late football legend George Best, has donated a range of t-shirts, shorts, socks and underwear to the store on St John’s Road.
“I’m really happy to be able to donate the clothes I don’t wear anymore to the British Heart Foundation, as well as some brand new items. It’s great to know that someone else will get some joy out of them,” said Callum.
“Plus the money raised from their sale will help the BHF continue to fund life-saving research to fight coronary heart disease, the UK’s single biggest killer, so everyone’s a winner.”
BHF Area Manager, June Tumilty, added: “We’re really grateful to Calum for donating his clothes to us, and to everyone else who kindly donates their unwanted clothing, accessories, CDs, DVDs and small household items. We absolutely rely on the support of the local community to keep us running and without their generous donations we risk reducing funding for vital research into heart disease.
“If each household were willing to spend just half an hour having a clear out and donating to their local BHF shop, they would be helping to save lives. It really is as simple as that! Please join the fight for every heartbeat and donate your unwanted items to your local BHF shop today.”
The BHF’s Bag it. Beat it. campaign urges people to donate bags full of unwanted items to their local BHF shop throughout September. Every bag donated will fund life-saving heart research, helping over 40,000 little heroes continue to fight congenital heart disease.
