Our friends at the British Heart Foundation have shared their Christmas wish with us - Could you be a Christmas Elfer?
It’s nearly the most wonderful time of the year, and here at the British Heart Foundation we are once again asking if you can spare just a few hours to support us?
Last Christmas we had a fantastic response to our Operation Elf campaign and now that it’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas, there is lots to be done in our shops and stores. We could really do with an extra pair of elfin’ hands! From Christmas wrapping to rockin’ around the Christmas tree, your gift of time can really help us deck the halls. Not only will it be a great way to learn new skills, try something new, and meet our amazing staff and volunteers, but you’ll also be supporting our lifesaving research.
Whether you want to volunteer as a one-off, as part of your university’s volunteering programme, or explore supporting us longer term, we value any time you can gift us. You can come along on your own or have a group of colleagues/friends volunteer with you.

Heart and circulatory diseases can affect anyone and everyone; in the UK alone these diseases kill 1 in 4 people. We are committed to changing that and beating the heartbreak caused by heart disease, stroke, vascular dementia and diabetes.
Our volunteers have a huge impact on raising money through our shops and stores, and your support can help.
Thank you, we appreciate every hour of time you can gift this Christmas.
