A new British Heart Foundation (BHF) charity shop has been opened by the mayor of Bromley.
Councillor Nicholas Bennett was joined by staff and volunteers as he cut the ribbon at the shop in High Street, West Wickham.
The charity funds innovative life-saving research into heart and circulatory diseases.
Cllr Bennett said: "I would encourage locals to support BHF by donating any good quality items to help this wonderful charity to beat heartbreak forever."
And Lesley Breedyk, area manager at the charity, added volunteers are also needed to support the shop..
Lesley said: "Each item sold will help the BHF fund life-saving heart research, so if you haven't yet visited then please do come by to see what great bargains are on offer.
"If you would rather give the gift of time, we are always in need of volunteers who can spare a couple of hours a week, so please get in touch if you are interested."
The BHF's vision is a world free from the fear of heart and circulatory diseases.
