New British Heart Foundation shop comes to Rye Lane

A new British Heart Foundation charity shop has opened in Peckham and is appealing for donations and volunteers.

Councillor Charlie Smith joined volunteers and staff from the 10 Rye Lane shop on Friday, August 24, to celebrate the opening with traditional ribbon cutting and cake.

The shop sells clothes, shoes, accessories, toys, books, music and films and is looking for donations – with can be arranged via a free collections service.

British Heart Foundation area manager, Ronald Berenger, said: ““Each item sold in the store will help the BHF fund life-saving heart research, so if you have not yet visited then 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 clothing and accessories.

“Donating couldn’t be easier with our free collections service and it’s a great way to cut down on waste.

“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.”

Proceeds from the charity’s 750 nationwide shops help to fund research into heart disease and treatments.
