Twickenham MP Vince Cable gave his backing to the British Heart Foundation (BHF) charity shop last week.

The Business Secretary visited the Twickenham shop, where he chatted to staff and volunteers about the work the charity does.

He said: "It was great to pop in and meet the dedicated members of staff and volunteers that work at the Twickenham BHF shop.

"The BHF is such a fantastic cause and the work they do is vital in the fight against heart disease.

"I’d urge locals to have a root around and donate any unwanted items to the shop or give the gift of time by volunteering."

Jenny Pryke, area manager, said: "We’re really grateful to Vince Cable for coming in, visiting our shop and meeting the team.

"We’re also always looking for more volunteers, so even if you can only spare an hour, pop to find out more information."

The BHF shop is always looking for donations and volunteers.

Be Warned - The British Heart Foundation exploits unemployed people.

Tens of thousands are being forced to work in charity shops under threat of having their benefits stopped entirely for up to three years. resulting in many being left completely destitute.

There is a boycott of the British Heart Foundation - and its a sad day to see a leading light of Liberal Democrats promoting them.
