Corby mayor Judy Caine will be launching the British Heart Foundation’s annual stock appeal in Corby.
She will be donating the first bag of goods for the Bag-athon in Willow Place shopping centre on Thursday, September 26.
For three days staff and volunteers from the charity’s shop in Corporation Street will be in Willow Place accepting donations of unwanted clothes, books, household goods, toys, CDs, and DVDs.
The charity’s area manager, Amanda Simpson, said: “We are delighted to be holding a Great British Bag-athon in the centre. It’s the perfect opportunity to have a clear out and donate any unwanted items, raising vital funds to support those in our community who are living with heart disease.
“You can even take on a bag filling challenge. Simply set a target and ask your friends, family, neighbours or work colleagues to pledge you bags and bring them along to our event.”
“We would like to urge everyone in Corby to get involved with this Great British Bag-athon event and help us raise bags full of unwanted things. This event can really help us reach our target of raising one million bags nationally during September.”
