Move your feet to the beat, says charity.

THE British Heart Foundation (BHF) is urging people in Coventry and Warwickshire to don their dancing shoes.

The BHF is encouraging people to exercise through dance and raise money for the charity at the same time.

HeartBeat, which is in its 10th year, is the charity's fundraising dance, movement and exercise initiative which also aims to promote the importance of exercise.

HeartBeat was launched this month and will run for the rest of year.

June Davison, cardiac nurse at the BHF said: "Not only is dancing a fun and social way to exercise, physical activity can also halve your risk of developing coronary heart disease - so why not arrange a HeartBeat event and get your feet moving to the beat."

The BHF is a national heart charity that raises funds for life-saving research into heart and circulatory diseases, and helps improve the lives of sufferers.

Fundraising information packs are available via the charity's website on www.bhf.org.uk/heartbeat or by calling 020 7487 7149.
