The shop will sells clothing and bric-a-brac is open Monday to Thursday from 10am until 3pm until September 3, when the hours will be increased from 9am until 4pm, Monday to Friday.

Joy Brown, Action Heart Fundraising Executive, said: “This is a completely new venture for Action Heart as we have never had a charity shop before but it is making a good start.”

Good luck to Action Heart with this new venture.

I'm that Action Heart is one of the best cardiac rehabilitation schemes in the country and 100's of people in our area benefit from their work. Hopefully they will raise some much needed money to keep up their good work.
