A charity has issued an urgent appeal for unwanted household goods that it can sell in its furniture and electrical store in Bradford.

The British Heart Foundation, which has a shop on Westgate, wants items such as sofas, beds, dining tables, wardrobes and TVs.

Area manager Simon Hatherall said: “We absolutely rely on the support of the local community in Bradford to keep us running and without their generous donations we risk reducing funding for vital research into heart disease.

“If each household was willing to spend just half an hour having a clear out and donating to their local BHF furniture and electrical store, they would be helping to save lives. It really is as simple as that.”
