Heart charity’s walk

Locals are being encouraged to join in a charity walk on Sunday in aid of the British Heart Foundation.

The guided walk starts off at Minto Church and War Memorial at 10.30am and will take in much of the glorious scenery in and around Minto Estate and up to Fatlips Castle which has been renovated and restored in the last few years to its former glory.

Walkers are asked to make a minimum donation of £5 and no dogs are allowed. The committee and organisers accept no responsibility and those taking part do so at their own risk.

The British Heart Foundation was founded by a group of surgeons in 1961 and is a charity organisation which funds research, education and awareness campaigns aimed at preventing heart disease. For further information on the Foundation’s work visit www.bhf.org.uk
