Here’s that woman who used to be “off the telly” but is now mostly “off the regional pantomime” putting something on a Christmas tree, to remind us that it’s soon going to be Christmas so we ought to get loads of prescription medication in off the internet to help calm the nerves and make it possible to get to January 3 without being found walking down a motorway in the rain.

Probably would, if she agreed to buy us a new car for Christmas.

Give a gift from the heart this Christmas

This is a fantastic way for people to make a real difference this Christmas and support the charity’s Heart HelpLine

Brighten up your Christmas tree and support the British Heart Foundation (BHF) at the same time with these cuddly festive decorations, available at Yorkshire Building Society and Barnsley Building Society branches this December.

There are five cute characters to collect for a suggested donation of £1.50 each which will go towards the Heart to Heart Appeal in aid of the BHF.

The Appeal, which is being supported by actress Lesley Joseph, is Yorkshire Building Society’s 2009 annual fundraising appeal that will raise money to help fund the BHF’s vital work, including its Heart HelpLine.

The Heart HelpLine is a dedicated telephone service run by cardiac nurses and heart health advisers who are trained to deal with a range of medical and lifestyle queries. Anyone can call to ask about their own heart health problems or those of a loved one– a vital service for people whose lives have been devastated by heart disease.

Actress Lesley Joseph says: “I’m proud to be backing Yorkshire Building Society’s Heart to Heart Appeal for the BHF. This is a fantastic way for people to make a real difference this Christmas and support the charity’s Heart HelpLine which provides vital care and support for heart patients and their families.”
