A city woman has received the British Heart Foundation Volunteer of the Year award during this year’s Volunteers Week.

Adele Johnson scooped the accolade for her service as a volunteer for the charity for over three years despite being diagnosed with a rare heart condition in 2009.

Adele remains positive and never misses an opportunity to raise awareness and fundraise at her workplace, Asda Bletchley, where she is often seen promoting the campaigns and work of the charity.

Adele said: “I am delighted to have been given such a prestigious title as there are so many worthy volunteers who give their time to the BHF. It has been rewarding work and I have enjoyed the last 3 years.

“I have made some wonderful friends and have so many lovely memories. I would encourage anyone to volunteer for the BHF as it is such a rewarding experience and lots and lots of fun. We have a lot of support as volunteers and there are lots of things you can do to get involved.”
