Are you a self-confessed bookworm? Spending a small fortune in bookshops? Are your local libraries threatening to charge you rent? Well BHF may have the perfect solution for you! In our shops we're always looking for enthusiastic people to help price, organise and display our wide range of books. Strike up conversations with fellow book lovers and blow their minds with simple facts about our lifesaving heart research - it's where the science-fiction meets real life. Research those rare unknown items and take pride in how much your discoveries go for on eBay. Create exciting and eye-catching displays and inspire others to pick up a book and spread the bookworm craze. With a volunteer thank you discount of 25% off any of our donated stock you can start putting your savings towards other important things, like another bookcase perhaps?
