Lisa Nandy issues call for volunteers at the British Heart Foundation

Lisa Nandy MP visited the British Heart Foundation (BHF) shop in Wigan to learn more about what the BHF is doing in the local community.  Every penny of profit raised in the BHF shop funds vital, life-saving research into heart disease.

The BHF shop is always looking for volunteers or donations and Lisa urged people in Wigan to pop in to see the shop for themselves.

The Wigan MP said: “It was great to meet the dedicated members of staff and volunteers that work at the Wigan BHF shop. The BHF is such a fantastic cause and the work they do is vital in the fight against heart disease.

“I’d urge locals to have a root around and donate any unwanted items to the shop or give the gift of time by volunteering.”

June Wrench Area Manager for the Wigan shop said: “We’re really grateful to Lisa for coming in and meeting the team. We’re always looking for stock donations, which are absolutely essential to the success of the charity, and play a vital part in fighting coronary heart disease – the UK’s single biggest killer.

“We’re also always looking for more volunteers, so even if you can only spare an hour, pop in to find out more information.”

Wigan’s BHF shop is always looking for unwanted items such as clothes, shoes, accessories, books, DVDs etc. 100% of the profits raised from donations helps the BHF  fight against heart disease and fund life-saving research. The shop offers a free collection service, call 0800 915 3000 for more information.
