THE British Heart Foundation wants Wearside children to take part in a competition to design a model heart as part of its Support Our Science (SOS) campaign.

The nation’s heart charity is asking schools and youth clubs across the country to develop and make a model heart which demonstrates how blood is pumped around the body.

The winning model will be turned into a kit by the BHF to help young people around the country learn more the organ.
