LETTER: Volunteers needed

The British Heart Foundation (BHF) is calling for residents to become Heart Heroes and use some of their spare time to volunteer for the nation’s heart charity.

We are always on the lookout for more volunteers to join the fight against heart disease.

You can get involved in a number of ways including becoming a volunteer driver, merchandising clothes, shoes and accessories to window dressing working behind the till, and administration work.

We are keen to hear from anyone who has a few hours to spare.

Volunteering with the BHF for just half a day a month could fund one of our scientists to carry out lifesaving research for a whole hour, but giving your time doesn’t just benefit the BHF. Volunteering offers a great way to meet new people, use your existing skills, boost your CV and help in the hunt for a new job.

Many of BHF’s paid shop management joined as volunteers and work in a range of positions from assistants, shop managers right up to area managers.

We have volunteers who enjoy their time with us so much they have been volunteering with the BHF for over 20 years.
