A new service has been launched by the British Heart Foundation (BHF), which will make it even easier to donate decluttered items and support the charity to help save lives.
Many people will have spent their time at home having a much-needed clear out and have been holding onto their preloved items ready to donate to charity.
BHF ‘s new idea is a post to donate service, which is a quick, free and simple initiative where you can donate smaller items via post.
As the charity’s 750 UK shops and stores begin to reopen throughout June and July, this service is the perfect solution if your local BHF shop is not yet open, or you’re simply not ready to head to the high street.
From electronic items, clothes and vinyl records to video games, shoes and collectible objects, the charity say they hope to receive good quality items which will be sold either online via their eBay store or at a BHF shop.
You can post your donations for free by downloading a postage label online and dropping it off at your local Collect+ store.

A spokesman for the charity said: “Our charity shops run purely on the support of the public, which is why we never take for granted anything that’s donated to us.
“Every pound raised in our shops helps us to support the 7.4 million people in the UK living with heart and circulatory diseases, many of whom are at increased risk from Covid-19.”
