It’s time you packed for good

Lifestyle Checking out

Did you know you can get rid of your unwanted things when you leave iQ by donating them to the British Heart Foundation? Well, you can – with BHF’s Pack for Good.

 

How it works

Pack for Good is a great way to give the things you no longer need a new lease of life, and help the pioneering work of the British Heart Foundation at the same time. Best of all, it’s as easy as it could possibly be.

Just grab a bag, fill it with the things you no longer need or want – like clothes, books, kitchenware and home accessories in saleable condition – and leave it at your onsite collection point. Your donation will then be collected from iQ by BHF to sell in their stores around the country.

It’s a win-win, as it doesn’t cost you a penny, and all proceeds from BHF shops go towards lifesaving research. Please use a bag, not a box, as this makes it easier to load in the collection van. Please also note that BHF are unable to accept duvets and pillows, so please take these home with you.

 

Why it works

Think your bits won’t make a difference? Think again. Over the last three years, iQ residents have (drumroll)

  • Made £250,000 worth of donations
  • Which diverted 141,000 kg of waste from landfill
  • (equivalent to the weight of 23 elephants!)

 

So, before you go, pick up a bag and Pack for Good. You’ll be glad you did.
