A UK charity is calling on the people of Moray to help beat heartbreak forever by supporting their new fundraising group.
The British Heart Foundation (BHF) Scotland wants locals to help out with the group at its first event to raise money for life saving research.
They will be running a stall at Gordonstoun School Highland Games on Saturday May 4 and they need some extra hands to help out on the day.
About 11,900 people across Moray are fighting a daily battle with heart and circulatory diseases.
Each year these devastating conditions claim the lives of more than 278 people in the region alone.
BHF Scotland’s fundraising groups are the face of the charity in their communities and work tirelessly to help fund research.
Lauren O’Shane has already signed up to join in, motivated by her family’s experience when her son Jordan was diagnosed with a congenital heart condition just a couple of weeks after he was born.
Now aged five, Jordan started school last August and is doing really well and Ms O’Shane now wants to encourage others to sign up and help.
She said: “BHF research gives us all hope for the future. I want to do what I can now to help improve diagnosis and treatment for other families like ours.
“BHF research gives us all hope for the future. I want to do what I can now to help improve diagnosis and treatment in the future.”
Anyone who would like to support the group should pop into the Elgin BHF Scotland Shop, 165 High St, or call 07984 152 552.
