BESPOKE craft pieces helped raise much needed funds for those with heart problems in Solihull.
The Hearts and Crafts event, which took place at the Bentley Heath Community Centre, saw more than 20 stalls raise £750 for the British Heart Foundation.
The fundraising efforts will be doubled to £1,500 thanks to Barclay’s Bank, Shirley, which promised to match-fund the total raised.
Jim Cleary, Solihull fundraising group for the British Heart Foundation, said: “As volunteers we are in our fifth year as the Solihull fundraising group for BHF, and our always looking out for new members whom, would like to contribute some time and effort, by joining our friendly group, and help us to raise funds for the BHF.
“Over 24,800 people in Solihull are living with heart and circulatory disease,so if you could join is and help power research and save lives.”
