WESTON’S British Heart Foundation is appealing for volunteers to work in its shop.

The British Heart Foundation funds scientists carrying out research to help better understand how to diagnose, treat, prevent and cure heart disease.

Volunteers can develop their skills, work towards qualifications and gain experience.

Darren Irwin, area manager for Weston, said: “Our volunteers are at the heart of the charity and we simply wouldn’t be able to continue our lifesaving work without them.

“We appreciate every minute people can spare and to show how grateful we are, we also hope to give something back.”

  • I was sent there by the jobcentre recently to volunteer and they told me they couldn't take anyone on because they already have too much staff and sent me home. It was a huge was of time, bus fare and the suit which I bought specially for it. Don't work for these people.
