The manager of the British Heart Foundation store in Larne has paid tribute to all those who donated to its recent street collections in the borough.

Two collections were held on Main Street in the town in June, raising £354.

A third collection was held in Glenarm on July 13, raising a further £97 for the cause.

Manager Louanne Gordon said: “I want to thank everyone for being so generous.”

Every day, the British Heart Foundation helps save lives by funding groundbreaking research, providing vital information that helps people keep their own heart healthy and through support and care for heart patients and their families.

The British Heart Foundation was founded in 1961 by a group of medical professionals wanting to fund extra research into the causes, diagnosis, treatment and prevention of heart and circulatory disease.
