Members of a church in Edmonton will be leafleting homes in the area for unwanted bric-a-brac in aid of a heart charity.

The Universal Church of the Kingdom of God in Edmonton, is hoping that people will be generous in giving unwanted belongings to British Heart Foundation.

Pastor Abraham Santos said: “We are already collecting bric-a-brac from our members, their friends and families and now we’re looking to the community for more.

“A team of volunteers will be sorting everything we receive from Saturday, February 22, onwards so that it is all packed up and ready to be collected by the BHF shortly after and taken away to some of their 735 charity shops for resale.”

Karen O'Donoghue, stock generation manager for the BHF, said: “We want to encourage everyone to have a route round their home and donate any unwanted bric-a-brac to their nearest UCKG HelpCentre. We welcome all donations - from photograph frames to vases and crockery – every penny we make will help us fund the fight against coronary heart disease, the UK's single biggest killer.”
