I was hoping for snow....................not rain dear

It's very very old.... a bit like me 8)
i hear reindeers like whiskas too, so spread that on your lawn they will come flocking ;)
It may be only 49p, but it's still deer food.
Is this the reindeer food that is oats and glitter and sequins that the birds get poorly when they eat?

They make a lot of their money from the council and Government in vouchers handed out to people in need. there are organisations around the country that give out furniture vouchers to people who are vulnerable and have just been found a new home, these can average about £250 and can only be used in a handful of charity shops, the main one being the Heart Foundation, so they get a lot of money that way and can charge crazy amounts for rubbish skip ready furniture as these people have no other place to spend their vouchers. So they end up with a second hand bed, wardrobe and wonky drawers for something like £250 when they could get new from Argos for less.. Eeeek! oO

They don't sell things at a reasonable price I went in and a rickety old wardrobe was £200 plus £15 delivery, they also said they'd dismantle and it was your responsibility to put it back together. I was pestered something rotten in that shop to buy something that wasn't worth anything, in the end I got 2 solid burred walnut wardrobes off ebay delivered for forty quid. People who go in to buy stuff generally can't afford to buy new, only to be guilt tripped and ripped off.

I can't say that I was pestered or even approached, but when I went to one of their stores which specialises in selling furniture, I was astounded at the prices of the second-hand donated goods. Lots of items were in the hundreds of pounds, and it - to me - felt more like a 'business' retailer (not charity) than a second hand shop selling donated furniture. I had the exact same thoughts that I could get items in the major retail outlets at similar prices but brand new and exactly to my taste due to the wider choice.

Absolutely my opinion of many large charities, they have about one manger on a fat salary in each store and all the other poor sods who work there out of the goodness of their heart for no pay get used and abused
Well, here's a typical BHF manager's 'fat' salary:
Retail Shop Manager
Location: Derby
Salary: £19,082
Hours: 35 hrs incl weekends
And the 'no pay' shop sales assistants get £7 an hour. :p

British Heart Foundation - Peter Hollins, chief executive, enjoys a salary of £153,000.
British Heart Foundation - Leslie Busk, enjoys a salary of £115,000

and countless others, millions squandered on the head honchos salaries.

millions invested in prime retail property for the.

very very little goes towards the charities causes, you're talking a percentage of extremely low single digits

and don't forget the slave workers that are forced to work 30 hours a week for their £70 a week jobseekers allowance, an equivalent of £2.33 an hour, what a great charity exploiting the most destitute and most vulnerable in society.

Actually the bhf dont take on mandatory work placements, only voluntary ones from the job centre. They have to turn people away if the placement feels in any way forced to work, or is under the impression their benefits will be affected in anyway as this is not the case. Managers will ask this question before getting into the interview and the job centre can actually get into trouble if they make people feel like they have to do a placement with the bhf as its in their agreement, that they don't take mandatory placements. Bhf only take placements from the job centre or anywhere else that have been offered the chance of work experience and they have themselves chosen the bhf. They want people who genuinely want to be there and in return they provide nvq's for free, references and work experience.

Also the paid staff dont make much money, they mostly work alot of overtime which is unpaid and the best stuff is not kept for staff as everything gets priced and put out on the shop floor first, the shops have very hard targets to hit on everything in the shop, so it would make no sense to be keeping things back, when targets have to be met in order to make as much money for charity as possible. Its a surprisingly hard job for very little in return apart from the want to raise as much as possible to help save lives. We are good people just trying to help others, not sure about higher up the ladder after shop staff, but I know its not the case in our shop.

If in Cumbria try Impact housing , but no-one will take upholstered furniture which doesnt have a fire safety label on it.
For these items use Freegle or similar - http://www.freegle.in/"name of town" will link you to appropriate group.
I do have some sympathy for BHF their aim is to make as much money for BHF - Heart disease research etc - not to provide furniture and items at below market value . They will therefore need to balance what they take with what they can sell and also keeping their donors happy !
Hi Coffee100,
BHF came 2 weeks ago to pick up two wardrobe from us and some clothes etc. I do understand what others said about they can be fussy. The wardrobes were old fashion but clean and definitely can sell to make some money. They weren't sure in the beginning, took it in the end but the feeling I get from them is like they don't really want to take it. I thought is good to pass it on to charity so they can get some money from it and I am doing a good cause. Truth is, I don't think I will bother next time as I have to wait from 7 to 3pm and on the day they specified. I changed my plan so I can stay home and wait. The good thing is they do text you an hour before. Still, my whole day is pretty much gone.

Would you consider giving your fridge to a homeless charity? I saw the advert on streetlife and I have contacted them myself. I will be giving them my fridge as well.

https://www.streetlife.com/conversation/pdgnqwjpsr6/
Booked a collection, hope they take it. I've heard they can be rude or fussy. Anyone know of any other sites that collect goods in west London?
I want to get rid of a large American fridge freezer. Thanks.

....Perfect for if like me you are moving house and want to get rid of that tatty old sofa!

The trouble is, they won't take your tatty sofa....

We use local ones now so know the money goes where it's supposed to and not to pay for some suit to sit on a beach in the Bahamas....we've also got better quality stuff from our local Freegle/Freecycle sites for free.

We do have some local projects like Eset posted the link to but even some of them get a bit greedy and sort of pointless saying things like "at affordable prices to people on low incomes" when they are even too expensive for those with a small little budget.

I think it's a bad idea too, unless you somehow reappropriate the stuff they send you. The BHF are a horrible charity, and any money would have gone towards doing this to animals:

...and this to people:

...so the less stuff out there that's promoting them, the better.

This is completely wrong. Sometimes you can only revive someone using mouth to mouth.
Thanks, but I'll stick to my own life saving methods I've learned from St. Johns Ambulance.
Like someone is going to complain if you perform a life saving procedure on them.

Great that you are willing to save someone's life, but I think you have missed the point of campaign.
For those that have been trained to give chest compressions and mouth-to-mouth, then they should do what they have been trained to do.

Many people have never received any training or received training many years ago- in these people, the instructions in this advert could save someone's life. Most cardiac arrests are caused by heart problems. These patients often have high levels of oxygen in their blood when their heart stops working properly, so mouth-to-mouth is not essential. In a very small sub-set of people (typically those who have drowned or been strangled) is mouth-to-mouth important.

The medical evidence very much supports the delivery of high-quality chest compressions.... these are what save people's lives.
St johns ambulance is the equivalent to a paramedic, what the salvation army is to SAS

I found this page as I too am having a major gripe with British Heart Foundation. I booked a collection of a really nice piece of handmade furniture, which I only wanted to get rid because of a house move. There's a slight fault in the way the door closes (which isn't obvious once door is shut). As it's a lounge storage unit, not a kitchen cabinet I can't see anyone having an issue with this and I never have. I now have 2 days to get rid of it!

I've often visited one of their large stores and my cabinet is a much better quality item than some of the absolute rubbish I've seen in their shop.

Mmmm - methinks the fact it's heavy and needed carrying downstairs had a little something to do with it...?
Are the donated goods actually being sold by the BHF?

Some charities use commercial collectors who export the goods for private sale. Only 40% to 50% of the sale proceeds ever get to the good cause.

Some of the charity collectors are multi-millionaires. The Guardian and the Daily Mail both investigated the commercial collectors for the rag trade who work for one of Britain's best known charities.. ( not the BHF)

I found they were a pain too. We got them to clear a rental flat (300 miles away due to relocation) that we sold - they took the bed and some pieces of furniture, but wouldn't take a dining table. It was actually quite a nice table, but did not have matching chairs. It had chairs that were perfectly good and they took them, but said they cannot sell a table if it doesn't have matching chairs. Ended up having to drive 600 miles round trip one night to smash up a perfectly good table to get it in the rubbish as the flat needed to be cleared.



Hmm so why did you smash it up?. even if it was too big i'd take it with me still. i dont smash anything up, i hang onto stuff till it's falling apart :D

I think BHF is good, and they have lots of these shops up and down the country. they have lots of tvs, only the big back tellies though, and vhs recorders too, furniture, and beds, i guess its right though, the table thing, it'd look a bit odd with non matching chairs, but even so, maybe some dont mind?. maybe they know people wont buy a table without chairs.
I've had no problems in using BHF @ Cheetham Hill/Salford & have used their collection service twice without any problems, I did not have to provide a certificate, but the 3 piece did need to have the right fire label, they also collected a tv which was without a stand & I have taken goods to the store which they happily accepted.
deb8z
I disagree cookiemonster,they know their market so to speak,they must know that tables don't sell well without chairs,i don't see the problem in them not taking them if they know they won't sell etc etc,they probably have so much they don't have the room to store tables for ages that won't sell.

And how many of us have chairs but no table? They can sell the wood on to the recyclers just as they can rags and electricals.
