Central Leader - - NEWS -

Call­ing all buskers – the Heart Foun­da­tion needs your help.

The heart health char­ity is look­ing for buskers to do­nate dur­ing its an­nual ap­peal, Heart Week, which runs from Fe­bru­ary 9 to 16.

MW Sell­wood from Three Kings, Michael Stone­ham from Green­lane and Ricky De Medeiros from One Tree Hill are among those who will be hit­ting the streets

The mu­si­cians are vol­un­teer­ing for the sec­ond year af­ter tak­ing part in the 2013 ap­peal.

Per­form­ing for char­ity is fun and re­ward­ing, they say.

The Heart Foun­da­tion works to stop New Zealan­ders dy­ing pre­ma­turely from heart disease.

Funds raised dur­ing Heart Week will help the Foun­da­tion fund a wide range of vi­tal pro­grammes.

The or­gan­i­sa­tion had a great re­sponse from per­form­ers do­nat­ing their time for the 2013 ap­peal, heart health ad­vo­cate for Auck­land Naadira De­sai says

‘‘Our buskers did an amaz­ing job through­out the city. They were re­ally en­gag­ing and the pub­lic re­ally showed their sup­port.’’

Be gen­er­ous: Michael Stone­ham, left, Ricky De Medeiros and MWSell­wood are call­ing on Auck­land buskers to join them in rais­ing money for the Heart Foun­da­tion.
