Heart char­ity group launch

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - Helping Others -

The Bri­tish Heart Foun­da­tion (BHF) is call­ing on Ash­ford res­i­dents to help ac­cel­er­ate the fight against heart dis­ease by start­ing a new fundrais­ing group in the town.

Around 13,460 peo­ple in Ash­ford are fight­ing a daily bat­tle with heart and cir­cu­la­tory dis­ease, and each year th­ese con­di­tions claim the lives of around 285 peo­ple in the area alone.

So now the BHF wants the com­mu­nity to take heart and join the fight against heart dis­ease by start­ing up a new group and raise vi­tal funds for heart re­search.

Kim Bro­phy, BHF fundrais­ing man­ager for Kent, said: “Too many lives are lost in Ash­ford each year, and we’re determined to do ev­ery­thing we can to pro­tect more fam­i­lies from this dev­as­ta­tion. By start­ing up a fundrais­ing group, you can help us fund the re­search that’s so des­per­ately needed to bring us closer to beat­ing heart dis­ease.”

Any­one in­ter­ested in set­ting up a new fundrais­ing group is asked to con­tact Kim Bro­phy on 07860 954 235 or email bro­phyk@ bhf.org.uk
