THOSE who have unwanted Christmas presents are being asked to consider donating them to charity.

The British Heart Foundation (BHF) is urging people to give unwanted gifts to one of its many charity stores in south-east Hampshire.

Selling the items raises money for the BHF, which goes into funding research.

That’s why people are being encouraged to donate their unwanted gifts.

BHF deputy retail director Diane Locke said: ‘It’s incredible that there’s £2.7bn worth of unwanted Christmas gifts in the UK this year.

‘Every year people receive presents that are just not 
to their taste, are the wrong size, or even two of the same gift.

‘These unwanted presents can make an extraordinary difference to BHF shops.

‘We’re encouraging people to donate their unwanted gifts and help raise vital funds in the fight against heart disease.’
