A Winsford woman has been named as one of the British Heart Foundation’s quirkiest fundraisers of 2017 after holding a miniature horse show to raise funds for the charity. Chloe Lewis, 21, from Winsford, Cheshire, raised £1,300 for the BHF by hosting a miniature pony show at Reaseheath Equestrian Centre in Nantwich.

The BHF is funding 58 research projects in the North West aimed at tackling heart disease, one of the region's biggest killers. Also on their list of unusual fundraisers is Dan Poole. Since January 2014 he has been collecting signatures from the 1993/94 Manchester United team to auction for the BHF. So far he's picked up 26 of the 33 players listed that season.
