Mum backs UK heart charity

A Manx mum is urging Island residents to back a British charity's Christmas appeal.

30 year old Emily Cattle from the Isle of Man is calling for people to support the British Heart Foundation's appeal.

Her plea comes after her two year old daughter Catherine was born with a rare and life-threatening heart condition, and underwent major heart surgery at just a month old.

Emily has already raised more than £3,500 for the foundation, and says she wants to raise as much as possible for Christmas.
