Love was at the heart of fundraising on Valentine’s Day in Ely as more than £635 was collected for charity at Waitrose.

Staff were encouraged to wear red and buckets were at checkouts for customers to donate to the British Heart Foundation.

A red raffle was held with the first prize being a hamper of red products stocked by the store with various smaller prizes.

Delicious cakes decorated with red toppings were also on sale in the dining room.

Debbie Walker, community lead, said: "It was a fabulous day raising funds for an extremely worthwhile cause."

The British Heart Foundation funds research to beat heartbreak from heart and circulatory diseases and their risk factors.
