Wrexham’s Member of the Senedd spent a morning visiting her local British Heart Foundation charity shop.
Lesley Griffiths MS met with the local store management team and the volunteers who donate their time to helping the daily running of the shop.
Commenting after her visit, Ms Griffiths said “It was a pleasure meeting the volunteers and staff at Wrexham’s British Heart Foundation store, discovering more about their work and general fundraising challenges.
“There is a real community spirit at the busy shop, which has a huge range of clothing, jewellery and furniture available, both in store and online.
“All the purchases in Wrexham are helping support world-leading research, which is happening right here in Wales’ universities.”
The British Heart Foundation funds around £100 million of world-leading research each year into all heart and circulatory disease and all the things that cause them, with some of this research happening right here across Wales. There is currently around 340,000 people living with the burden of heart and circulatory disease in Wales alone and BHF Cymru relies on store volunteers to be able to continue funding life-saving medical research to achieve the vision of a world free of heart and circulatory disease.
Volunteering at your local British Heart Foundation offers an opportunity to learn new life skills and gain valuable experiences, such as customer service or getting involved with sales. BHF Cymru provides all different volunteering opportunities, whether it’s a couple hours on the weekend or the chance to become more experienced and make life-long friends. BHF volunteers help us to save and improve the lives of families and loved ones affected by heart and circulatory disease. To find out more, visit your local BHF store and head online and visit www.bhf.org.uk.
