Former local government officer and now taxi driver Leith Mulvaney has been raising money for the British Heart Foundation since his life-saving by-pass operation in 2008.
He has since raised over £6000 through two very different annual events, SO different some might see them as totally contradictory, one involving lots of exercise - and the other lots of eating!
The first held each year is a sponsored walk around Lanark Loch, and this annual event for the Heart Foundation was soon joined by another Foundation fundraiser which fast also became a new Lanark tradition - Leith’s Curryoake Night.
This year’s Curryoake Night takes place on February 27 at the Wee Man’s Castle Bar, where tickets can now be bought for £4 per head. Tickets are also available by phoning Leith on 0777-862-8382.
