Professor Kim Dora officially cut the ribbon on a new British Heart Foundation shop in Aylesbury this week. BHF Engagement Officers arrange for BHF-funded researchers to open each new charity shop so the volunteers in the shops know where the money they raise ends up.

Kim chatted with volunteers for half an hour, gave a short presentation and answered questions, then cut the tape before the public literally rushed in for the first time.

Kim said, "It was humbling to see how hard these people work to raise money for our research, and delightful to see their enthusiasm, dedication and teamwork."
