Hertbeats

Today, Glenda Elder was in the studio to discuss Hertbeats, a local charity dealing with cardiac issues.

It acts as a support network for people who have had heart attacks or ongoing heart issues. She said that they aim to show these people that life can remain enjoyable, even in the face of such serious issues.

Hertbeats mainly concerns itself with social activities to build friendships and positivity. According to Glenda, the main tools used by the charity are "tea, biscuits and banter" at their meetings, which take place on the 3rd Tuesday of each month at St Mary's Church in Marshalswick.

The charity also offers more practical support, such as annual talks from cardiologists.
