Clear your shelves with Cilla Black and The British Heart Foundation
CILLA Black has joined The British Heart Foundation (BHF) in persuading people to clear their bookshelves for charity.
As part of BHF’s BIG Entertainment Appeal the former Blind Date hostess has donated her own library to help the cause.
“My entertainment collection is full of treasures,” she said. “From The Beatles and Cliff Richard to Jackie Collins and Pride & Prejudice I enjoyed rummaging through, relieving the memories, and passing them on to a great cause.
“It would warm my heart to see locals taking a trip down memory lane too by sharing some of their classics with BHF Shops.”
So if your favourite read of last year now gathering dust on your book case or you listened to that must have CD or watched that DVD one too many times then BHF is asking you help them reach their target.
