Your unwanted clothes could save lives, says Widnes charity shop
THE average person in Halton admits to owning five items of clothing that they’ve never worn, complete with tags, according to a new survey by British Heart Foundation.
The charity is appealing to World readers to donate their unwanted things to their shop in Albert Square, Widnes.
The greate British bag-athon aims to raise one million bags of unwanted items to raise vital funds for lifesaving research.
A survey revealed that almost a third of people across the north west estimate their unworn clothes are worth £105.
Debbie Boylen, BHF regional manager said: “We’re all guilty of hanging onto clothes that we haven’t worn for a while or in many cases, never worn at all. Every bag you fill is a bag full of life-saving research.”
