PATIENTS and well wishers will get the chance to see fundraisers walk the high wire and zoom down a zip wire at Russells Hall Hospital this weekend.

On Sunday afternoon from 3pm volunteers will be raising cash for the Russells Hall gym and fitness centre Action Heart.

Sue Jones, who is helping organise the event, said: “There will be everyone from teenagers to pensioners raising money on Sunday afternoon and it would be great if we got lots of support.”

Action Heart is one of the largest cardiac rehabilitation programmes in the UK and offers comprehensive rehabilitation programmes for patients who have had heart attacks and other cardiac problems.
