North East BHF Furniture & Electrical Stores are calling on local people to donate their unwanted household goods after buying new items in the January sales. BHF North East Stores are always looking for donations of sofas, chairs, dining sets, beds and wardrobes plus an array of electrical items including TVs, Hi-Fis, washing machines, fridges and dishwashers.
Barry Greenstreet, Regional Manager said: “With so many local people buying new household items such as beds and sofas in the January sales we know there will be a lot of unwanted items around. It’s shocking that 26% of local people said that they throw out their unwanted furniture and electrical goods so we just want to remind everyone that we’re always looking for donations for our North East BHF Stores and offer a free collection service.
“When you consider that selling two sofas can provide a heart patient with a hand held ECG machine so that they can monitor their heart at home, it really puts into perspective how much our North East BHF Stores need these items.”
