FALMOUTH’S British Heart Foundation shop is appealing for volunteers to help out during the festive period.

Christmas is the busiest time of the year for the charity, with each BHF Shop in Cornwall needing 40 extra hours help per week.

Sarah Boardman, regional manager for BHF Cornwall shops, says: “There are so many great opportunities available in our shops this Christmas - I’d really like to encourage people in Cornwall to make a huge difference by giving the gift of time."
