Local MP Stephen McPartland visited the Stevenage BHF Shop to see first hand the support from local people who volunteer and donate stock, helping the British Heart Foundation, the nation’s heart charity, continue its lifesaving work.
Stephen, said "It was great to meet the team at our local BHF Shop and see them in action. They are doing a fantastic job raising money for such an important cause which affects so many people locally. The wide range of stock on offer also means there are plenty of bargains for our local community too."

Volunteers and donations are the lifeblood of our business so it’s great he’s here to highlight the importance of this and get the local community to support our Shop. BHF Shops raised £31 million last year in the fight against heart disease.”
