FIRST it was murder most horrid. Now a Hartlepool charity is planning the blues.

The quick-thinking officials on the town branch of the British Heart Foundation )BHF) are proposing their next fundraising venture.

It comes less than two months after they held an action-packed murder mystery night at the Hartlepool’s Maritime Experience.

 Branch spokesman Alan Walker, who has helped the murder mystery night become a huge attraction each year, said: “We have another event at the Maritime Experience on Thursday, May 30, May starting at 
7pm.

 “It will be a folk, jazz and blues evening with tickets costing £10.”

 The admission price includes a hot meal and there will be other attractions as well, including a raffle on the night, said Mr Walker.

 It’s been a busy time for the local BHF branch. Its annual murder mystery night saw Maritme Experience staff playing the parts of the actors and Mr Walker described the event as “a whodunnit with the audience invited to guess the 
culprit”.

 The proceedings also included an evening meal and a raffle and organisers hoped to raise a £500 profit for the charity.

 Despite its limited number of officials, the BHF is doing fantastic work in town.

 Hartlepool became the first British Heart Foundation (BHF) Heart Town in the North.

 BHF officials felt the town was an ideal place to target for help at a time when more than 100 people were still dying of heart disease in Hartlepool each year.

 The deal means more will be done to bring communities together through local fundraising and volunteering as well as raising awareness of heart disease.

 The project will also involve the public by offering residents support services.
