Community Stock Generation

We fund around £100 million of research each year into all heart and circulatory diseases and the things that cause them. Heart diseases. Stroke. Vascular dementia. Diabetes. They're all connected, and they're all under our microscope.

Our volunteers help us fund lifesaving science to improve the lives of families and loved ones living with heart and circulatory disease. Volunteering with us is easy, flexible, and inclusive. If you can spare a few hours a week, or a couple of hours occasionally, we’d love you to join our volunteer team.

Could you encourage your local community to recycle their unwanted items by donating them to your local British Heart Foundation shop?

Could you help to build and maintain friendly relationships in the local community and talk to local businesses about surplus stock they could donate?

Join your local BHF shop in this flexible and unusual role that will have a big impact, helping us continue to fund life saving research.

Typical tasks include:

  • Promoting stock donation campaigns in your shop
  • Giving out donation bags in your community
  • Arranging collections of stock donations
  • Contacting local businesses & hotels when refurbishing
  • Supporting stock donation events


  • Become a part of our stock campaigns and get the local community involved in our stock events
  • All the stock which people like you generate helps us provide funding for over half of the UK's independent research into heart and circulatory disease!
