Man of Steel project raises cash

ROTHERHAM’S giant Man of Steel project is already helping raise money and save lives after handing over a cheque for £2,865.

The cash follows the announcement in July that ten per cent of donations to the Heart of Steel would go to the British Heart Foundation.

The 2.5 ton heart sculpture will sit within the 30 metre tall Man of Steel overlooking the M1 at Kimberworth.

Members of the public can have their name or that of a loved one inscribed on the heart for a £20 donation.

BHF fundraiser Lauren Mallinson said: “We are delighted to receive this important initial contribution from the Yorkshire Man of Steel.

“Our pioneering research has helped revolutionise the treatment of heart attacks and other cardiac conditions. But coronary heart disease is still the UK’s single biggest killer.

“Through this exciting and growing project, your name or that of a loved one will power research that will save lives in all our communities.”

The cash will help the BHF fund lifesaving research into heart and circulatory disease.

Sculptor Steve Mehdi said: “This is a unique opportunity for the public to support the amazing work undertaken every day by the British Heart Foundation’s scientists and researchers, while also helping to bring the Yorkshire Man of Steel to life.

“We are thrilled to present our first donation to the BHF and start making a difference to saving and improving lives now in South Yorkshire and across the region.”
