Headlands donation to our heart appeal

Stella Tindall, Gail Slater and Donna Hirst with David Stamper, Headlands associate assistant headteacher.

It has already passed its £5,000 target for this year – and now the work has started to fund a second heart screening day in Bridlington in 2019.

Last week, the Have A Heart, Save A Life appeal passed its target to put on an event to test 100 under 35s later this year.

But the plan was always to make the screening day an annual event, and a donation from the Tour de Bridlington event at Headlands School has kick-started the second event with a cheque for £300.

Gail Slater, one of the former Marks and Spencer workers who started the appeal, said: “Thanks to headlands for their generous donation which has given us a good start to our screening day next year on August 6.

“Headlands have already pledged their support to us next year too.”

Details of how residents can sign up for the first event, which will be held at Bridlington Club for Young People in October, will be announced soon.

In the meantime, the team’s fund-raising work continues. The next event will be a fashion show at M&Co in Prince Street on Thursday, August 9.

Guests will enjoy a 10% discount on all purchases on the night and tickets are available from Crane Wharf Cafe or 
the harbour huts.

They are priced at £5 and the show begins at 6.30pm.

The appeal was set up in memory of James Moorfoot, a popular teacher who died while playing football for Langtoft in January 2017.
