A MORPETH charity shop is hoping to put a spark into its birthday celebrations with an appeal for electrical items.

The British Heart Foundation (BHF) is celebrating its 50th anniversary this week and to mark the occasion it has teamed up with Currys and PC World to appeal for small electrical appliances.

Unused equipment such as bread makers, blenders, hi-fis, hairdryers, toasters, kettles, radios, DVD players and other items would be welcome as after safety checks they can be re-sold to raise funds for the charity.

People can take the items to the Bridge Street shop, or drop it off at any Currys or PC World store in Northumberland this month.

BHF Retail Director Mike Lucas said: “We’re delighted to have joined up with Currys and PC World for this appeal and I’d like to encourage every single household in Northumberland to have a rummage for unwanted electricals. Each and every one we receive will be giving hope to those suffering from heart disease.”
