Let Cruse help you get through
The British Heart Foundation (BHF) Furniture & Electrical Stores are calling on local people to visit, find a bargain and help save lives. With a wide range of pre-owned, new and vintage items at great prices – there is something for everyone and 100 per cent of the profits raised from sales go towards the fight against heart disease.
All types of bargains can be found from one off items, something modern, antique gems or even something ‘ vintage chic’. Our Stores have fresh stock on display daily and also sells brand new dining and bedroom furniture as well as a wide range of large and small electrical goods, all at great prices.
Area manager, Sharon McNicol, said: “Our BHF Stores are our biggest secret! It is a great concept and offers affordable items to local people whilst promoting reuse and helping to save lives.
“We have some real bargains to be found with sofas priced from £ 95, beds from £45 and washing machines from £60. When you consider that selling two sofas can provide a heart patient with a hand held ECG machine so that they can monitor their heart at home, it really puts into perspective.”
Locals can book a free collection for unwanted household goods by going online at bhf.org.uk/free or calling the Store on 0808 250 0110.
Eve ryone experiences bereavement at some stage in their life – whether it’s the death of a parent, a loved one, a friend or a child.
The experience often means that our lives will never be the same again. Sometimes the feelings – despair, loneliness or even guilt – may overwhelm us, so much so that we need help. In time, and with support, we can work through such feelings and learn to live with our loss.
At Cruse Bereavement Care Scotland (CBCS) we’re here to help you through this difficult time. We’re able to listen – offering an impartial ear with no agenda – or we can support you via one-to-one counselling sessions where you can work through your grief. Or it may be that you need reassurance that other people have been through a similar experience – indeed it might be helpful to read about other people who have been bereaved and hear how they’ve coped. Please be assured that all our services are offered to everyone free of charge. Who Are We?
We are a charity, staffed by volunteers, to give bereavement support to people throughout Scotland. We have teams in the major population areas plus we are able to provide support across the country by phone. Founded in 1959, Cruse gradually developed into a volunteer counselling service. The first branch of Cruse in Scotland opened in the late 1960s and by the mid ‘90s there were 28 branches north of the border. Cruse Bereavement Care Scotland (CBCS) was set up on 11 April 2001 as a fully independent Scottish charity, working in a federal relationship with other parts of Cruse. Funding We rely on grants and donations but also give those we help the opportunity to contribute. Why not make a donation so we may continue to help those struggling with grief and to reach out to even more people who need our help?
