“I am thrilled to be supporting HEART UK’s National Cholesterol Month and their good work in raising awareness of the dangers of high cholesterol, often referred to as the silent killer. We should all be aware of our cholesterol levels and the importance of a healthy lifestyle.  I wish them all the best with this worthy campaign”.
