Deputy Mayor of Islington Cllr Kat Fletcher joined staff and volunteers yesterday afternoon for the opening of the British Heart Foundation (BHF) furniture and electrical store in Holloway.
Located at 83 Seven Sisters Road, the shop sells donated second-hand furniture and electrical items.
Funds raised from the new store will help to fund the BHF’s pioneering heart research.
Area Manager Mira Palmer described the opening of the new Holloway store as a “huge success” but said the shop was still in need of donations.
“We still urgently need more donations and are appealing to everyone in the local community to have a root around in their home and donate any unwanted items. We offer a free collection service for larger household items so having a clear out has never been so easy!”
