Big hearts sup­port char­ity

Airdrie & Coatbridge Advertiser - - News -

Staff and vol­un­teers at the Bri­tish Heart Foun­da­tion (BHF) fur­ni­ture and elec­tri­cal shop wel­comed lo­cal MP Neil Gray for a tour of the South Bridge Street store.

They told the Air­drie & Shotts rep­re­sen­ta­tive about the work of the char­ity’s re­sale and re­cy­cling fa­cil­ity; and of how do­na­tions have in­creased, with sales cur­rently amount to more than £5000 per week.

Mr Gray also met de­liv­ery driv­ers – some of whom travel as far afield as In­ver­ness in the course of their work on be­half of the char­ity.

He praised the “fan­tas­tic fa­cil­ity” and said: “Not only does it help peo­ple get qual­ity fur­nish­ings when set­ting up home, it also has a great track record in get­ting peo­ple vol­un­teer­ing and se­cur­ing jobs.

“I was amazed at the vol­ume of sales this one shop gen­er­ates and I’m re­ally proud that the peo­ple of Air­drie sup­port BHF to such an ex­tent.”
