2018: Your year to volunteer

If you are thinking of trying something new this year, why not consider joining our team of volunteers at your local British Heart Foundation shop. You can make friends and learn new skills, all while supporting your local community.

Whether you want to volunteer as a one off, pick up a few shifts or explore supporting us longer term when you can, we value any time you can give us. Everything you do will be helping to fund our life saving research.

Signing up is easy

Simply print and fill in the volunteer form, find your nearest shop and pop in for a chat. On the day, remember to bring details of your potential referees and proof of your ID too. Don't worry if you can't print the form, our teams will have them on hand and look forward to meeting you.
