Forfar man Sam Connelly raised £565 for Angus Cardiac Group recently at his 80th birthday party.

Mr Connelly has supported the group in many different ways since he joined in 2005 and he is also an excellent example of the benefits of exercise. Despite having a triple bypass in 2004, he runs every day and still takes part in races over various distances up to half-marathon.

Gordon Snedden, group chairman, said: “We very much appreciate this donation from Sam and the money will be used to support others in the group with cardiac disease and to purchase equipment for use by health professionals in Angus who are involved in cardiac care.”
