Fighting against heart disease

I hope you will allow us to use your letters page to thank the good people of Horsham for supporting our charity collection, held on Saturday July 7.

We were able to raise the sum of £350.99 and thanks go to those who donated and to the splendid volunteers, who were responsible for collecting this magnificent sum.

It is only through the generosity of supporters like them that we can continue our vital work, which is why their kindness is greatly appreciated.We have been leading the fight against heart disease in the UK for 50 years and will continue to do so until it is no longer a major cause of disability and early death. With our supporters’ help we are providing funding for all areas of heart research; buying life-saving equipment for hospitals; providing BHF Nurses to give advice and reassurance to heart patients and their families.

We also publish free heart health information to help people reduce their risk of heart problems or to understand an existing condition.

Should anybody be interested in the work we do or would like to assist us, we can be contacted as follows: chairman: Gerry Howard 01403 257027 or treasurer: John Morfett 01293 512790.Heartfelt thanks once again to all involved.
