Do you want to be a ‘Love Heart?’

If so we need people over the age of 18 who are able to volunteer their time in Nottingham. This year the Love Hearts will be working closely with the African-Caribbean community so we are looking for volunteers who are comfortable with working with this community.

Enthusiasm, reliability and a willingness to have a great time volunteering are the only other requirements. You will develop lots of useful skills and experience on the project as well as training in community research and reporting, training in the BHF Healthy hearty Hearts Kit, Training in emergency life support, assistance to access course of your choice, opportunities to influence local and national agendas, a British Heart foundation goody bag and a Bright Ideas Goody Bag which will be topped up every month you volunteer and much more.
