LOW donation levels at the British Heart Foundation’s furniture and electricals store in Grantham are becoming a real concern for the shop’s management.

According to assistant shop manager Katie Brown, stocks at the High Street store have now reached critical levels and urgent action is needed.

Miss Brown said: “We desperately need electrical goods but stock is down across the board. The people of Grantham have always been very generous with us, but lately our phones have stopped ringing.”

Around 90 per cent of all electrical goods and furniture sold in the store are second-hand items, provided by members of the public, so the recent decline in donations has had a terrible knock-on effect.

Donations of items such as TVs, coffee-makers, beds, sofas, tables, chests of drawers and wall units would be gratefully received.

Miss Brown said: “Anything people can give us we will take and re-sell it.

“It will help save lives in the process.”
