“The coronavirus crisis has had a seismic impact on the income of the BHF and the last 12 months have been the hardest in our 60-year history.

“Our shops play a huge role in funding vital research into heart and circulatory diseases and run purely on the support of the public, which is why we never take for granted a camera, book or sofa that’s donated to us.”

Fife’s stores are: 221 High Street, Kirkcaldy; Lyon House, Glenrothes; 51 Crossgate, Cupar; Bell Street, St Andrews, and High Street, Dunfermline.
