Cut out cho­co­late to keep­y­our­self­fight­ing­fit

East Kilbride News - - [email protected] KILBRIDE VIEW -

This is a call-out to all choco­holics, co­coa bean lovers and con­fec­tionary en­thu­si­asts!

A sug­ges­tion, a plea, an idea that will ex­er­cise willpower and strength whilst help­ing those in Scot­land who are liv­ing with heart and cir­cu­la­tory dis­eases… De­chox! I’m ask­ing peo­ple to for­get the or­di­nary New Year detoxes and in­stead just cut one beloved item from your pantry through­out the month of Fe­bru­ary – cho­co­late. Each year, heart and cir­cu­la­tory dis­eases kills 1 in 4 peo­ple in the UK, 15,300 of which are from Scot­land.

Money raised by those brave enough to take on the chal­lenge will go to­wards the Bri­tish Heart Foun­da­tion’s (BHF) life-sav­ing re­search into heart and cir­cu­la­tory dis­eases.

Last year, we saw over 18,000 cho­co­late lovers raise an as­tound­ing £1 mil­lion to­wards vi­tal re­search.

But with your help, we think we can raise even more in 2019.

By stand­ing up to heart and cir­cu­la­tory dis­ease and say­ing no to cho­co­late this Fe­bru­ary, we’ll be one step closer to beat­ing heart­break for­ever. Sound like a bat­tle you want to be a part of? Sign up here: www.bhf.org. uk/de­chox Adrian Adams, Bri­tish Heart Foun­da­tion
