Residents of Rutherglen and Cambuslang are being urged treat their heart by pledging to adopt a new healthy habit in support of National Cholesterol Awareness Month, which launches on Thursday.
Celebrity chef Cyrus Todiwala has backed the campaign being launched by charity Heart UK.
He said: “Raising awareness of high cholesterol and cardiovascular disease is personally very close to my heart and very important. I wish them all the very best.”
The theme of this year’s awareness month is ‘Great Cholesterol Challenge.’
