‘Join the fight’
BRITISH Heart Foundation (BHF) Scotland is calling on Angus residents to help accelerate the fight against heart disease by joining a new community volunteer group.
Heart and circulatory disease claims about 830 lives in Angus and Dundee city every year, with about 36,000 people locally living daily with the devastating conditions.
Community volunteer groups are the local face of BHF Scotland, from running fundraising events to supporting schools and local businesses and organising collections.
Kathy McIlwaine, BHF Scotland fundraising manager for Dundee and Angus, said: “We’re determined to do everything we can to protect more families from this devastation.”
