The charity, which funds research into ending heart disease, welcomed shoppers with an official ribbon cutting ceremony.

Area manager Jack Watson said: “The opening of the new store went extremely well. Each item sold will help the BHF fund life-saving heart research.

“We still urgently need more donations so if you are having a clear out in the next few weeks, we would love to receive any unwanted clothing and accessories.

“If you would rather give the gift of time, we are always in need of volunteers who can spare a couple of hours a week, so please get in touch if you are interested.”

The store, in High Street North, sells second-hand clothes, bags and toys, along with music, books and films.
