Let Cruse help you get through

Rutherglen Reformer - - Spotlight on Charities -

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?
