Community, Letters to the Editor
Dear Editor, British Heart Foundation (BHF) Northern Ireland is calling for local people living in Newry and the surrounding area to become Heart Heroes and use some of their spare time to volunteer with the local BHF Northern Ireland Shop. Letters to the EditorWe 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 our BHF Northern Ireland Newry Shop 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 charity. 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 Northern Ireland’s paid Shop Management joined as volunteers and work in a range of positions from Assistants, Shop Managers right up to Area Managers. Our volunteers are at the heart of the charity and we simply wouldn’t be able to continue our life-saving work without them. We have volunteers who enjoy their time with us so much they have been volunteering with BHF Northern Ireland 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. You could even volunteer some extra time to clear out your wardrobe. Our local Newry shop always needs more stock. Your unwanted items help fill the shop shelves and raise valuable funds in the fight against heart disease. BHF Northern Ireland operates a free collection service which can be booked on 0800 915 1111 or for larger furniture and electrical items, visit bhf.org.uk/free To find your nearest BHF Northern Ireland Shop or Store call 0800 915 1111 and for more information on volunteering opportunities visit bhf.org.uk/volunteer Yours Sincerely, Maureen McElhatton – Area Manager, British Heart Foundation Northern Ireland
