Soroptimist International of Harrogate and District has teamed up with the British Heart Foundation (BHF) in the fight against heart disease.
President Gillian Trotter has chosen the British Heart Foundation as the group’s charity of the year for 2013 to 2014. There is an active programme of events planned for the year, with fundraising focused on four key events, a stall at Wetherby Country Fair, a talk by Chris Brown MBE entitled On Top of the World on November 23, a clothes exchange evening on February 7 2014, and a President’s Fundraiser Race Night on May 29 2014.
Mrs Trotter said: “We’re delighted to be working with the BHF during our 80th anniversary year. We hope to raise as much money as possible to help fund the BHF’s research into heart disease. Many of us have been personally affected by heart disease and it’s good to know that our support is making a difference.”
