BHF shops urge people to donate their unwanted Christmas gifts

NEW research by the British Heart Foundation (BHF) has revealed the gifts that people of the North West are hoping not to find under their tree this year. This comes as the BHF launches their annual unwanted Christmas gifts campaign, encouraging people to donate their unwanted Christmas gifts to their local BHF shop to fund life saving research. The survey of 2,000 British adults revealed nearly a ⅓ of people in the North West (32%) wouldn't want to unwrap a Selfie Stick this Christmas, followed by the Insanity workout DVD (16%) and the onesie (8%). The average person receives at least 1 Christmas gift they don't want each year according to the survey, and even TV stars are not exempt from finding unwanted gifts under their tree. Oliver Proudlock, star of Made in Chelsea, said:- "Last year I received some lovely gifts but 3 copies of The Hunger Games book was a bit much! Rather than letting unwanted gifts clutter up the house this year and feeling guilty for letting them go to waste, I'll be donating to my local British Heart Foundation shop to raise funds for their life saving research." With over a ⅓ (36%) of people in the North West saying they feel guilty about getting a present they don't want or won't use, BHF shops are urging the British public to turn this guilt into good by donating their unwanted Christmas gifts. With nearly 750 BHF shops across the UK, donating could not be easier.  Mike Taylor, Retail Director at BHF, said:- "It's really interesting to see the items that people aren't looking forward to receiving this Christmas, but 1 person's unwanted gift is another person's perfect present. Whilst a Selfie Stick may not be on the top of some people's lists, there will be others who can't wait to get their hands on one! We are encouraging people to donate their unwanted Christmas gifts to BHF shops this Christmas to help our fight against coronary heart disease, the UK's single biggest killer. Every item helps."
