Two good causes are appealing for volunteers to help out with collections at Tesco stores on February 13 and 14.

Both the British Heart Foundation and Diabetes UK need helpers to raise money that will help kick start a campaign that aims to encourage people to reduce their risk of cardiovascular disease and Type 2 diabetes by leading a healthier lifestyle. Both conditions are largely preventable by making healthy choices.

The two charities have pledged to team up for three years to raise millions of pounds that will be used to help save lives by getting people to eat better and get active.

Collections are being held at the Riverfield Drive and Bedford Tesco Metro stores.

To volunteer email tescocollections@bhf.org.uk or phone Michelle Parry at the British Heart Foundation on 020 7554 0520.
