Home Retail Group, owner of Argos and Homebase, has raised more than £550,000 for the British Heart Foundation (BHF) in the first six months of their partnership.

This weekend sees the launch of Argos’ 2009 spring/summer catalogue, and is expected to be one of the busiest fundraising weekends of the year for the retailer. Over 400 BHF volunteers will be present in most of its UK stores to collect donations and talk about the charity’s work.
