The Tribune (NZ) - - OPINION -

On be­half of ev­ery­one at the Heart Foun­da­tion, thanks to all those in Palmer­ston North who gen­er­ously gave up their time to vol­un­teer dur­ing our an­nual ap­peal.

As a char­ity, we sim­ply can­not con­tinue our life-sav­ing work with­out the sup­port of vol­un­teers through­out the coun­try. This is es­pe­cially true dur­ing our ap­peal, when we rely even more on ‘many hands mak­ing light work’.

Palmer­ston North raised a to­tal of $5136.20. To ev­ery­one who col­lected do­na­tions in the streets, and to all those who raised funds in their work­places, schools and early child­hood ed­u­ca­tion ser­vices, thank you. A huge thanks also to ev­ery­one who dug deep and made a do­na­tion. Your gen­eros­ity means we can fund more vi­tal re­search, sup­port peo­ple with heart dis­ease, pro­mote heart-healthy life­styles and ad­vance car­diac care in this coun­try.

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

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 www.heart­foun­da­tion.org.nz/ do­nate
