The British Heart Foundation in Loughborough is calling on local businesses to donate unwanted office furniture to charity.
The appeal comes after Morningside Pharmaceuticals Ltd, based in Pavilion Way, made contact and donated a number of high quality office items.
Sharon Tracey, Office Manager for the British Heart Foundation in the Market Place, said: “I would like to call on local businesses to consider donating their furniture, as the money we raise goes directly to research into heart disease, care, equipment and after care.
“We regularly ring local businesses to see if they have anything to donate, so it was great that Morningside took the initiative and contacted us about their unwanted office furniture. It’s good quality and will really help our cause.”
Businesses wishing to donate their furniture should make contact with the charity, which will then arrange for it to be collected free of charge.
Morningside’s donation included desks, desk pedestals, filing cabinets, shelving and a reception unit.
Dr Nik Kotecha OBE, Chief Executive of Morningside, said: “We pride ourselves on supporting local causes and were delighted that the British Heart Foundation felt that our furniture donation would help raise money for their life-saving work.”
If your business would like to make a donation call 01509 268 205.
