Cherie Blair turns out to support this Autumn's

Each year, the British Heart Foundation carry out their 'Great British Bag-athon', asking people to donate their unwanted items to their local BHF shop.

On Friday 25th October, Cherie Blair took time out of her busy schedule to drop off her bag of donated items to the British Heart Foundation's shop, in Oxford.

Cherie is a familiar face at the British Heart Foundation shop in St Ebbe's, because her Mother Gail has volunteered at the store for over a decade.

Each year, the British Heart Foundation carry out their 'Great British Bag-athon', asking people to donate their unwanted items to their local BHF shop. Each bag filled is money for life-saving research into the causes of heart defects and coronary heart disease. The target was to collect a million bags for this year's event, and according to their website, that target has in fact been smashed!
