‘Join the fight’

Evening Telegraph (First Edition) - - Front Page -

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.”
