Local charity shop needs donations

A local charity shop needs your help to raise funds for people in Scotland affected by chest, heart and stroke illness.

The shop at 80 Castle Street, Forfar run by Chest Heart and Stroke Scotland (CHSS) is appealing for donations of good quality clothes, books, bric-a-brac and small electrical goods..

Manager Tracey Brown explains: “We’ve had tremendous support from local people since we opened four years ago and I’d like to thank everyone for their custom and support, but now we really need more donations of stock to sell in the shop.

“If you’re doing your spring cleaning we’d love to help you clear out your clutter by taking your unwanted items.

“ All donations are greatly appreciated and help us to raise money to fund the charity’s wide range of services.”

CHSS improves the quality of life for people in Scotland affected by chest, heart and stroke illness, through medical research, influencing public policy, advice and information, and support in the community.

Their volunteer stroke service helps people who have had a stroke, particularly those left with communication difficulties, and they also fund stroke nurses to help people coming home from hospital after a stroke.

CHSS’s advice line telephone 0845 077 6000 offers confidential independent advice from professional nurses and there is a website where useful links can be found and publications downloaded at www.chss.org.uk.
