WestpacTrust Helps Build Healthy Hearts

7 February 2000


You can get handy hints on how to improve the health of your heart by visiting any WestpacTrust branch on Heart Day.

WestpacTrust is joining with the National Heart Foundation to promote Heart Day and an awareness of healthy living and the dangers of heart disease. Heart Day is on Valentine’s Day (14 February) and all WestpacTrust branches will be accepting donations to the foundation and feature displays about Heart Day.

The displays will include posters, collection boxes and donation envelopes, and branches will be giving out information sheets with handy hints on how you can have a healthy heart.
