Junkbusters – Don’t Dump it – Donate it!

The British Heart Foundation (BHF), Guild of Students and the University of Birmingham team up  to run a project called “Junkbusters”, encouraging students and residents to donate unwanted items to charity. Community Wardens, student volunteers and staff from the Guild and University have been riding round the local community in a spruced up electric milk float, called ECO1, collecting donation bags.

Donation bags and leaflets were distributed to houses throughout the Bournbrook & Selly Oak area in March and June and were then collected from doorsteps across several a number of dates in March, June & July  All items kindly donated by the community will be stocked in the nation’s heart charity’s network of over 700 shops – making a difference to heart health, research and saving lives!
