It’s party time for British Heart Foundation volunteers this week as they celebrate the Murraygate stores 1st Birthday.
Assistant Manager, Pamela Devlin, said: “The birthday party is a thank you to our volunteers. They help the fight against heart disease and are responsible for the shops ongoing success.
“We are having a buffet at the shop and awarding ‘yearly service’ awards to 5 of our staff as well as some other certificates.”
The store – which sells clothes, accessories, bric-a-brac and books – has around 60 volunteers. Some volunteers offer 2 hours of work every week whilst others help out on a full-time basis.
The store is currently offering a raffle for customers with all ticket proceeds going to baby heart monitors.
Manager Tracy Perrie added: “We also want to say thank you to our customers and the general public for their donations. Some walk some distance with items for the shop and the goods they bring down can be quite heavy too.”
Anyone who is interested in volunteering can email Pamela at firstname.lastname@example.org or call her on 01382 205625.
