The Great Scottish Walk 2007

Why not look out your walking boots and join us on Sunday 10th June 2007 at the Great Scottish Walk. We are hoping that a number of teams will represent the High Blood Pressure Foundation next year. This is a great dayout, a fun way to exercise, you can be energetic and power walk or take your time and enjoy the carnival atmosphere! Why not encourage some friends to join you. "Take a lead, motivate others..there are walks for all grades of fitness" ... pop the date in your diary.

Gifts
A new addition to our attractive gift range is a delightful study of a girl in a red chair drawn by Jane Soeder and presented in notelet form. A pack of 10 notelets costs just £3 and is an ideal way of keeping in touch with friends all year round.
If you would like to order some cards please telephone 0131 332 9211 or send a cheque to the High Blood Pressure Foundation, Dept of Medical Sciences, Western General Hospital, Edinburgh EH4 2XU.

New leaflets.

Understanding High Blood Pressure

This leaflet details treatments available for high blood pressure and what patients can do to help themselves.

Eating to your Heart's Content

Give as you Earn
Payroll giving means asking your employer to deduct a small sum from your pay to give to charity. Many employers and their employees now do this. If you pay tax through PAYE deductions, you may donate to one or more charities, up to a maximum of £1,200 a year.

Legacy Giving
If you have already included the Foundation in your Will, we acknowledge with gratitude the part you are playing in ensuring our future. If you have not done so, we would ask you to please consider doing so, to enable our work to continue. We have a useful leaflet to help you entitled A Moment or Two of your Time.

In addition we have leaflets on
Understanding Blood Pressure and Cholesterol and Cardiovascular Risk.

All leaflets are available from the High Blood Pressure Foundation. If you would like us to send you a copy of one of our leaflets, contact us.
