A POPULAR charity shop is celebrating 20 years of success.

Staff at the British Heart Foundation shop, in the Eastgate Centre, Basildon, threw a party with tea and cake to mark the landmark birthday.

Certificates were handed out to dedicated volunteers. Louise Harbour, area manager for the British Heart Foundation, said, “We’ve enjoyed a fantastic twenty years of business in the Basildon shop. I’d like to take this opportunity to thank all our loyal customers and volunteers who really make this shop special and help the BHF fund its life-saving research.”

She added: “We’re always in need of stock, so if you’re having a clearout, join the fight for every heartbeat and help fund life-saving research with your donations!”

The shop sells clothes, shoes, accessories, DVDs, books and CDs, with all profits going towards lift-saving research. For more information about donating or volunteering, visit www.bhf.org.uk

Well done all the staff here. Always very popular this shop, and handy for those people only able to work for a living. Saves wasting their hard earned money at the way overpriced Super? Markets!

I love charity shops, have volunteered in them and regularly donate to them especially the British Heart Foundation shop in Rayleigh. They link your donations to your postcode and email if you ask them to so you can see how much each of your donated items has raised.

My dad died of a heart attack so I feel a particular connection with BHF.
