Boost for Cardiac Group

ANGUS Cardiac Group has received £2,000 from The Co-operative Membership, after being announced as one of the winners of the retailer’s Big Community Vote.

The UK-wide initiative, launched in March, encouraged local charities and community groups to nominate themselves and demonstrate the value of their work locally for the chance to win a cash boost to help their project.

Five local groups were shortlisted to go forward to an online poll, and members of The Co-operative were asked to vote online for their favourite.

As a result, Angus Cardiac Group, which provides help and support for local people with heart disease, has been awarded £2,000.

Mary Ballantyne from the group said: “We are thrilled with the funding we have received from The Co-operative. We are very grateful to everyone who took the time to vote for us, which shows how supportive our local network is, and how valued our work is within the community.”
