Within days of becoming a HEART UK Ambassador Tony Drury, a city Business man and writer of romantic thrillers, began penning a short story in aid of the charity. The short story titled Hannah’s Choice will be available for National Cholesterol Week (14th- 20th October) and will be sold exclusively in support of the awareness week and Cholesterol Charity. The book is just £1 with all proceeds going to HEART UK- The Cholesterol Charity.
Tony recently became aware of HEART UK and the important work they do just before the launch of his third novel, a romantic thriller also called ‘Cholesterol’. Copies of the latest book and other City Fiction publications, ‘Megan’s Game’, and ‘The Deal’ were gifted to guests at the launch in return for generous donations to HEART UK.
To kick-start his fundraising efforts for the Cholesterol Week Tony Drury will be signing copies of all 3 of his novels and ‘Hannah’s Choice’ at Luton & DunstableHospital on Monday 14th October. Proceeds from all sales will be divided between HEART UK and the Cardiac Centre at the hospital. Tony will also be doing a book signing at Leighton Buzzard Main Railway Station on Thursday 17th October, during the busy early morning rush hour.
Half of all heart attacks are caused by raised cholesterol, six in 10 adults in the UK have this condition and every 6 minutes in the UK someone dies from a heart attack. HEART UK is the only charity in the UK dedicated to supporting people with raised cholesterol and other blood fats and also supporting healthcare professionals treating these conditions.
Tony said: “I want to support HEART UK’s National Cholesterol Week by raising significant sums of money. All the money raised from the sales of ‘Hannah’s Choice’ goes to the charity. It will be a great week for me working as an Ambassador for HEART UK.”
