November is charity month

Monday, November 15th, 2010

At Managed Recruitment Solutions, we are proud to support the British Heart Foundation.  As has been mentioned on this site before, the BHF carries out a large amount of amazing work, not just in terms of research into heart disease and heart conditions in children and adults of all ages, but also in terms of aftercare and support for patients and their families.

Heart disease kills three times more women than breast cancer and is the UK’s biggest lady killer. The BHF is raising awareness of this through a one off night of comedy on December 5th at the Theatre Royal Haymarket in London, called the Angina Monologues. Hosted by the multi BAFTA award winning Victoria Wood, the Angina Monologues will see Victoria and other star-studded guests give us their unique take on affairs of the heart.  Further details can be found on the BHF website
