Hairy Biker drops into Monmouth Charity Shop
VOLUNTEERS at a Monmouth charity shop had a surprise visit from a much-loved celebrity today (THURSDAY)
Celebrity chef Si King, who makes up one half of The Hairy Bikers, delighted volunteers and staff at the British Heart Foundation Cymru’s Monmouth branch where he bought an Elvis LP, cuddly toy and a hat.
Store manager, Gareth Noble said: “Si was an absolute gent, he took the time to talk to our volunteers and really made their week.”
The Monnow Street shop is a great place to pick up good quality, clothing, handbags, shoes, books and toys, and every purchase helps fund lifesaving research into heart and circulatory diseases.
Mary Douglas, Area Manager at the British Heart Foundation, said: “It was a real treat for our team to meet Si at our Monmouth shop. We’re thrilled he picked up a few bargains, and it just goes to show you never know what you’ll find – or who you’ll bump into – at the BHF! We’re are always in need of quality donations so please do keep us in mind in future if you’re having a clear out! You can pop into your local shop or call and we can collect.”
