British Heart Foundation (BHF) Scotland is calling on the people of Ellon and surrounding district to help beat heartbreak forever by supporting a new local Ellon fundraising group raising money for lifesaving research.

The group has already raised more than £250 from a couple of small events and the next event in its packed fundraising event calendar is a Christmas Shopping bus trip to McArthur Glen Livingston Retail Park which will be held on November 16.

With lots of lovely surprises for passengers, it is sure to be a big success and early booking is advisable.

Anyone who would like to go is asked to call 07912 144865 for tickets.

Kathy McIlwaine, BHF Scotland fundraising manager for Ellon and District, said: “Heart and circulatory diseases kill one in three Scots.

“Too many lives are lost each year, and we’re determined to do everything we can to protect more families from this devastation.

“By supporting your local fundraising group you can help us fund the research that’s so desperately needed to bring us closer to beating heartbreak.

“New members are always welcome. It’s also a fantastic way to meet new people and make a real difference in your community.”
