British Heart Foundation Broadmead Open Today:
The British Heart Foundation in Broadmead, has reopened today following a large fire which devastated the store just two-weeks into its grand opening in the summer.
Nobody was hurt in the fire, but it’s taken six months to bring the home and fashion store back together after tens of thousands of pounds worth of extensive fire damage occurred.
Retail Director at the British Heart Foundation, Allison Swaine-Hughes said: “I am delighted we’re able to reopen our flagship British Heart Foundation store in Bristol. The fire in July caused significant damage to our store and came as a huge disappointment for the volunteers and staff who opened it only two weeks earlier. It is therefore fantastic to have it back up and running, raising funds for life saving research into heart and circulatory disease. I would like to thank the local community for all their support and good wishes, and would ask Bristol’s local community to continue with their amazing support by donating their unwanted clothing, homewares and furniture so that the BHF Bristol store can resume its vital work.”
The shop has been restocked with furniture, clothing, accessories and books, with the BHF offering a local free collection service.
As well as selling goods, the store will also be a community hub, offering heart health information and running CPR training sessions.
The new store needs donations of good quality furniture, clothing, bags, books, home accessories and more.
You can arrange a free collection by calling 0808 250 0030 or visiting www.bhf.org.uk/collection
