British Heart Foundation appeals for volunteer drivers

Barnstaple charity shop needs drivers to help collect and deliver clothing.

THE British Heart Foundation’s Barnstaple charity shop is appealing for volunteer drivers to collect and deliver clothing.

Volunteers will need a car of their own and spare time to help make a difference to the charity fighting against heart disease.

Melanie Kowalski, area manager for the Barnstaple BHF Shop 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 and to show how grateful we are, we also hope to give something back.”
