British Heart Foundation opens new Home and Fashion Store
The British Heart Foundation (BHF) staff and volunteers were joined by the local Portsmouth community on Tuesday 10th December to celebrate the opening of the new store. After trading for over 25 years in Portsmouth, the charity is excited to expand. At 11-15 Arundel Street, the new store will help the BHF fund innovative life-saving research into heart and circulatory disease.
On opening day, shoppers were welcomed with a cutting of the ribbon, while customers from the surrounding area headed down to bag some bargains. After the smaller clothing shop located on the same street closed earlier this year, the much larger store stocks a huge range of good quality and affordable second-hand items such as beds, wardrobes, TVs and sofas, as well as clothing, shoes, bags, toys and books.
Jenny Taylor, Area Manager at the BHF commented: “The opening of the new Portsmouth home store went extremely well. Each item sold will help the BHF fund life-saving heart research, so please do come by to see what great bargains are on offer.
We still urgently need more donations so if you are having a clear out in the next few weeks, we would love to receive any unwanted furniture, homeware, clothing or accessories. We even offer a free collection service so making large household donations couldn’t be easier, just get in touch with the shop if you would like to arrange one.
If you would rather give the gift of time, we are always in need of volunteers who can spare a couple of hours a week, so please get in touch if you are interested.”
The Portsmouth team would like to encourage people if they are in the area to pop into the store for a browse through their wide range of products and to learn more about donating unwanted items to the BHF.
The new store is located at 11-15 Arundel Street, Portsmouth, Hampshire, PO1 1NB.
