SIXTH Form students from Ysgol Brynhyfryd, in Ruthin, raised more than £740 for British Heart Foundation (BHF) Cymru.

Coronary heart disease is Wales’ single biggest killer.

For over 50 years the BHF have pioneered research that’s transformed the lives of people living with heart and circulatory conditions.

Their work has been central to the discoveries of vital treatments that are changing the fight against heart disease.

Many continue to need their help from babies born with life-threatening heart problems to the many mums, dads and grandparents who survive a heart attack and endure the daily battles of heart failure.

Deputy head girl, Elen Rowlands, presented a cheque to BHF Cymru’s local fundraising volunteer manager, Sion Edwards.

Elen Rowlands says: “We all know someone that’s been affected by heart disease – sadly it touches us all. It’s great to know that our efforts will make a difference in helping to fight for every heartbeat.”

Sion Edwards, at BHF Cymru, added: “We’d like to thank the students of Ysgol Brynhyfryd for organising such a fantastic event and for presenting us with such a generous donation today. Every pound raised, minute of your time and donation to our shops will help make a difference to people’s lives in Wales.”
