Heart heroes appeal

THE British Heart Foundation is on the look out for heart heroes in Northumberland.

It needs volunteers to help raise funds during its 50th year anniversary, as part of its Hand on Heart volunteer campaign which will run throughout June.

Volunteers can help in a number of ways from local fund-raising, helping in a BHF shop or organising independent events to raise money. Those who raise £30 will fund a heartstart UK emergency life support training pack, £180 could help fund a full day of BHF nursing care and £250 could cover the cost of a ECG machine.
