Strangford MLA Kieran McCarthy said: “Heart and circulatory disease is the UK’s biggest killer. I am backing this campaign to raise awareness and make people think about lifestyle changes to improve their health.
“People do not necessarily need to take drastic steps to help their heart – often all they need to do is change their diet slightly or walk a bit more instead of using the car all the time.
“The statistics on heart disease are staggering. Over 90,000 people die in the UK every year as a result of it, and this is a killer that can be stopped if people take action in their own lives. “
