Donating unwanted electrical items this weekend will provide a boost for a charity which supports people with heart disease.

Norwich City Council and the British Heart Foundation have joined forces to offer people the chance to recycle small and medium-sized unwanted electrical and electronic items.

Last time there was such an event it raised £6,300 for the charity - enough to pay for six defibrillators.

The British Heart Foundation will collect items which are suitable for re-use and eventual resale from their local Norwich store.

The money made could be used to fund research into heart disease or to teach children about the importance of exercise.

Items such as toasters, hairdryers, mobile phones, TVs, games consoles and kettles will be gratefully received.
