Bags of charity

SHOPPERS are being asked to spare a thought for the British Heart Foundation when they head to Pescod Square in Boston this weekend.

The charity is urging people to take part in the Great British Bag-a-thon by filling a bag with unwanted clothes, shoes, CDs, DVDs, books and accessories and taking them to the drop-off point in the centre. Each bag will go towards the charity’s stock appeal. Bags will be available from volunteers on the day.

The event will also be running the following weekend. Bags can also be left in store.
