The Have A Heart, Save A Life campaign, which the Free Press is supporting, is now halfway to its £5,000 target to hold a screening day this year.
The latest donation came from residents and staff at White Rose Lodge in Bridlington, who raised £200 knitting and selling Easter chick egg cosies throughout March in aid of the appeal. They also held an Easter coffee afternoon and raffle and home owners the Maria Mallaband Care Group has added an extra £100 to the kitty.

Meanwhile, West Building Supplies has announced it will be supporting the Have A Heart, Save A Life campaign over the next couple of months.
The company, which has branches in St John Street, North Back Lane and at Bessingby Industrial Estate, has pledged to donated £1 for every bulk bag it sells during May and June.
Owner Chris West said: “We had no hesitation in supporting such an important and worthwhile campaign, which could save lives in Bridlington.”
The campaign was set up by former members of staff from Bridlington’s Marks and Spencer store.
They wanted to arrange a heart screening day which would test 100 people, aged under 35 in Bridlington, for heart conditions.
That will take place at bridlington Club for Young people in October.
It follows the death of teacher James Moorfoot during a football match in Langtoft last year.
