An appeal for ties from the public led to a whopping 417 being donated to the East Lindsey Heart Support Group.

Secretary Carol Wilkinson was inspired to make the appeal after reading an article in the British Heart Foundation Heart Matters magazine.

The result was overwhelming, Carol received no fewer than 417 ties which will be turned into around £1,000 to the British Heart Foundation charity.

The ties will be distributed all over the country and Carol would like to thank everyone who contributed to the collection.
