JOIN THE BIG STITCH FOR CHARITY
The British Heart Foundation (BHF) is calling on all crafty shoppers from Leeds to help beat heart disease by taking part in The Big Stitch campaign.
Until 15 July style seekers can help raise vital funds for life saving heart research, by buying an item from the BHF Leeds shop and adding their own personal stamp to it. The best will be in with a chance of winning one of three fantastic prizes.
The Leeds BHF shop, based at 4 Newmarket Street is one of 530 BHF clothing and accessory shops across the UK. BHF shops are full of amazing finds that can easily be adapted to suit your personal style, through utilising basic sewing skills and adding decorative items.
Each item sold in BHF shops will help to raise money to transform the lives of around 79,600 people from Leeds living with heart and circulatory diseases.
Jenny Booth, the Area Manager for the BHF’s Leeds shop said: “We are really excited to see shoppers from Leeds injecting their own fashion flair in to our vast range of high quality donated clothes and accessories”
The Big Stitch competition* will run until 15th July 2018. Entrants are encouraged to tag the BHF in their ‘before’ and ‘after’ pictures on Twitter, Instagram or Facebook, using the hashtag #TheBigStitch.
All entries will be automatically entered into The Big Stitch competition and be in with a chance of winning one of the following prizes: return flights to a top European fashion destination, a Janome 2200XT sewing machine from Sew Essential or a £50 voucher towards a dressmaking class with Sew Over It. A winner will be selected and announced on 3rd August 2018.
