Thank you for your support Woodland Opticians!
Staff from Woodhouse Opticians on Highfield Road, Blackpool visited Heartbeat’s Blackpool class at Stanley Park Leisure Centre to see firsthand what their fundraising efforts were going towards. The team at Woodhouse raised £731.64 following their Christmas event and raffle.
The evening saw the Highfield Road community come together to for a night of mulled wine, nibbles, prosecco and even a visit from Father & Mother Christmas. The night also launched the annual Christmas Raffle held by Woodhouse Opticians which raises funds for local charities.
Heartbeat support over 800 people every week across the North West who are living with heart disease through a specialist, GP led cardiac rehabilitation programme. Heartbeat’s preventative work, which in 2016 reached over 3500 school children, works in the community to raise awareness of heart disease and to promote a healthier lifestyle.
Heartbeat need to raise over £900,000 each year to continue to offer these services, all of which is raised through voluntary donations from people such as the team at Woodhouse Opticians.
