THE ATHENA NETWORK RAMPS UP THE RED FOR BRITISH HEART FOUNDATION
West Berkshire businesswomen raised more than £50 for the British Heart Foundation when they “ramped up the red” at the Athena Network’s Newbury meeting last week.
Members and guests donated and wore red in support of the BHF’s Heart Month, organised locally by Alison Rosier, the charity’s fundraising volunteer manager for Wiltshire and West Berkshire and charity member of the Athena Network team.
Alison said: “Thank you so much for your kind contribution; I can’t thank the Athena Network ladies enough for daring to go red to fight coronary heart disease and taking part in this year’s campaign. Every pound raised will make a difference to people’s lives.
“Heart and circulatory disease is still the UK’s single biggest killer, claiming one in three lives every year. That’s why their effort means so much - with the continued support from our community, we are able to go on saving more lives every year.”
