A heart­felt thank you

South Waikato News - - NEWS / OPINION -

On be­half of the Heart Foun­da­tion, I would like to of­fer my warm thanks to ev­ery­one who kindly gave up their time to vol­un­teer for us dur­ing Heart Week, our an­nual ap­peal.

The Heart Foun­da­tion is a char­ity and we rely heav­ily on ev­ery­day Ki­wis to help us con­tinue our fight against heart dis­ease.

We are for­tu­nate that so many peo­ple in Pu­taruru, Toko­roa, Tau­maranui and the greater Waikato felt moved to sup­port us by stand­ing out in public with a bucket in hand, col­lect­ing dona­tions last week. You helped make Heart Week a huge suc­cess.

I also want to thank each per­son who dug deep and made a do­na­tion dur­ing Heart Week. Your con­tri­bu­tion means we can keep fight­ing heart dis­ease in this coun­try. I can as­sure you that your do­na­tion will re­main in this re­gion.

Lastly, we are ex­tremely grate­ful to all of the busi­ness own­ers who al­lowed us to col­lect dona­tions out­side their premises.

Thanks again to ev­ery­one for get­ting be­hind our cause dur­ing Heart Week. Heart dis­ease is still this coun­try’s big­gest killer but, to­gether, we can change that.

If you have not been able to make a do­na­tion yet, it’s not too late. Call us on 0800 830 100 or go to heart­foun­da­tion.org.nz.
