A CHARITY is urging people to have a new year declutter – and take unwanted items along to its Keighley shop.

The British Heart Foundation welcomes goods including clothing, jewellery, books and games.

Funds raised through anything sold at the outlet, in the Airedale Shopping Centre, support research into heart disease.

Allison Swaine-Hughes, for the charity, says: "At the British Heart Foundation, we depend on generous donations from the public to continue to fund our lifesaving research.

"If you have unused items, why not make use of them and start the new year off by giving back?

"Simply drop them off at your local shop, or alternatively you can post them for free."

Also, there is a free collection service for goods such as furniture.
