Electrical goods donation day success

Staff at a Heanor charity shop collected everything from a yogurt maker to vacuum cleaners as part of an electrical goods donation drive in the town on Saturday. The Ray Street charity teamed up with Derbyshire County Council to set up a stall on the Market Place in the town for people to hand over unwanted electricals. Salcare now hopes to get all the items tested and sent to a new home. Store manager Sue Clarke said: “It went very well – there was a constant stream of people. We had everything donated really: yoghurt makers, vacuum cleaners CD players, lamps – the lot.”

Salcare is still accepting working electrical goods at the Ray Street shop if people would like to donate.
