Charity shop ‘goes red’ to beat UK’s biggest killer

CUSTOMERS at Sidmouth’s British Heart Foundation (BHF) shop ‘saw red’ when they visited the Fore Street store on Friday, February 24.

Staff donned the colour in a bid to battle the UK’s biggest killer.

The outlet was among 550 across the country aiming to net cash through donations from customers to beat heart disease.

Heart-shaped badges with the caption “a little pin-a lot of love” were sold for �1.

Store manager Penny Brown hoped the day helped the shop raise around an extra �100 on the day.
