VOLUNTEERS definitely didn’t have a hole in their bucket after raising £190 in a few hours on the streets of Matlock.

Cousins Jen Lynn and James Taylor hit the town to raise funds for the Matlock British Heart Foundation branch.

Jen, of Swanwick, has been volunteering with the BHF for five years and is now urging others get involved and spare a few hours.

She said: “James and I are really pleased to have raised £190 for the BHF in just a few hours.

“This money will help save lives and support those living with heart conditions and their families too.”

Sophie Jardine, BHF Fundraising Volunteer Manager in Derbyshire, added: “We are extremely grateful to all our volunteers who help raise funds for and awareness for the British Heart Foundation.

Last month, the Matlock Fundraising Branch raised £231 at a collection held at Sainsbury’s.
