This January, the BHF Manchester store will be undergoing a shop takeover, selling Under Armour sample products at discounted prices for just three days.
High quality sportswear will be going on sale at huge markdown prices, with all money raised from sales going towards the BHF’s life saving research into heart and circulatory diseases.
This rare opportunity to purchase discounted items from the brand will be taking place from 9am on Friday 24 January until 4pm on 26 January. The charity hopes locals looking to get fit as part of their New Year’s resolution will take advantage of the deals on hoodies, fitness wear, trainers and more and show their support for the charity’s vital work.
Not only will the sports brand be donating all money raised by the sales to the BHF, but the company’s head office will also be volunteering at the shop over the course of the weekend. This came about in a show of solidarity of their colleague who was recently personally affected by heart disease. They will be chatting to customers, advising on technical and sizing questions and helping provide the charity with much needed volunteering hours.
Jane Flannery, Regional Director at the British Heart Foundation, said: “We’re so grateful to Under Armour for their support and generosity in donating their stock and helping us arrange this takeover of our Chorlton shop. We hope the sales of this incredible sportswear brand will help raise much needed funds for research into devastating conditions such as heart attack, stroke and vascular dementia.
If you’re looking to get fit this New Year, why not head down to our Chorlton shop and get kitted out in stylish activewear at bargain prices, before it’s all gone.”
Each year, 935 people lose their life to heart and circulatory diseases in Manchester and currently 49,400 people are living with these devastating conditions across the city. All money raised from the Under Armour partnership will go towards accelerating research into new ways to prevent, diagnose and treat heart and circulatory diseases.
As the UK’s largest charity retailer, each year the BHF’s 740 shops help raise £30 million for life-saving research. Without the public’s generous support the BHF could not continue to turn bargains into scientific breakthroughs.
From 27th January the Chorlton shop will be back to business as usual and any high-quality donations will be gratefully received, whether you want to get rid of unwanted Christmas presents or are simply having a January clear-out.
If you would rather give the gift of time, the shop is always looking for volunteers who can spare a couple of hours a week. As well as supporting the research charity, you will also be improving your CV and meeting new people from all walks of life.
