The British Heart Foundation is encouraging shoppers to take part in its fundraising activities throughout the month of May.
The shop which is located in the Belvoir Shopping Centre, and is manned by two members of staff and 26 local volunteers, will be launching a ‘guess the teddy’ competition as well as a daily sweepstake for customers to take part in will be launched on Monday 7 May, 2012. Each activity is £1 to enter.
Kath Dowling, deputy manager at the British Heart Foundation in Coalville says: “We are always looking for new ways to fundraise to support those who are living with heart disease. The support we receive from shoppers in Coalville is fantastic and we are looking forward to May’s activities”.
The charity has been in the Belvoir Centre for over 20 years and is one of the stores that helped to raise £31 million last year. It was recently announced that the British Heart Foundation’s shops had a record breaking year this year (2011-2012) as like-for-like sales rose by 3.1% - and generating a profit of over £31 million all thanks to local communities like Coalville.
