THE British Heart Foundation (BHF) shop in Motherwell celebrated its second birthday last month and manager Carolanne Nolan paid tribute to her loyal volunteers.

BHF mascot Hearty was on hand to distribute one-year service certificates to Brian Henderson, Eddie Boyle and Carol Cullen, while Billy Bryce received a two-year certificate having been at the shop since it opened.

Carolanne said: “If it wasn’t for the volunteers we couldn’t run the shop and this is just a small way to say a big thank you to them.

“Billy has been with us since day one and works five days a week, indeed many of the volunteers put in more hours than the staff, and I don’t know what we’d do without them.

“I would also like to thank all our customers who have supported us and made the shop such a success.”
