BHF volunteer appeal

Have your say

THE Hawick branch of the British Heart Foundation (BHF) has issued an urgent appeal for new volunteers.

The High Street shop, which employs one full-time and one part-time member of staff, currently has ten volunteers.

But shop manager Jackie Blackie has appealed for more help.

She said: “We’re looking for anybody who could do two or three hours and it doesn’t need to be every day.”

Every penny raised through the BHF shop stays in Scotland.

Jackie added: “We couldn’t run the shop without the volunteers, they are the lifeblood of the place.”

Anyone interested should pop into the shop. Two references are required.
