A volunteer whose dad died of heart disease is appealing for more Rugby people to support one of the town’s biggest charity shops.

The British Heart Foundation’s Furniture & Electrical Store in High Street is appealing for electrical items and for more volunteers to help out.

And Steve Speck, who has been giving his free time to the store since July 2011, believes it’s a good way to save lives and enjoy yourself at the same time.

He said: “I chose the BHF as a means of putting something back into a cause which is close to me.

“Heart disease claimed the life of my father many years ago and helping to raise funds for vital heart research can only help to save lives in the future.

“The store is a great environment, and I would recommend it to anyone with time to spare.”

Store manager Joanna Stewart-McCrea said people who donate their time to help the charity are “invaluable”.

She added: “Volunteers who help us run our store efficiently are as vital to us as the people who donate their unwanted items,” she said.

“We simply could not function without them.”

If you have any unwanted electricals which are in working condition, please drop them into the store at 16-18 High Street, Rugby CV21 3BG or, for larger items, telephone 0844 248 9183 to arrange a free collection.’
