Have a heart in phone appeal

Happy Heart Weekend is coming up on May 13 and Leinster Rugby are lending their support by organising a mobile phone collection at the Leinster v Edinburgh match on Sunday.

The Irish Heart Foundation, with help from Vodafone, needs your old mobile phones to raise vital money to support people affected by heart disease and stroke. Each year the Irish Heart Foundation receives hundreds of calls from people worried about their own or a loved one's health.

By recycling your mobile phone, you will help someone answer their call because all proceeds from this campaign go to the Irish Heart Foundation's Heart and Stroke Helpline 1890 432 787.

The helpline is run by medical professionals who give support daily to patients, their families and the general public.
