VOLUNTEERS are needed for the British Heart Foundation shop at Lakeside.

Volunteering with the BHF for just half a day a month pays for a scientist to carry out life-saving research for an hour.

The shop gives volunteers the opportunity to learn new skills, gain full training and also have a guaranteed interview for any paid position that becomes available.

Louise Harbour, area manager for Lakeside, 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 have volunteers who enjoy their time with us so much they have been volunteering with us for over 20 years. We appreciate every minute people can spare.”

The Lakeside store always needs more stock. A free collection service can be booked on 0844 3341400.
