It looks like the whole of Ballymena will be backing six year old Mark Lynn for a British Heart Foundation hero award!

Mark, who is a pupil in P3 at Ballykeel PS, has a serious heart condition which means that he is constantly in and out of hospital.

But when this little ‘hero’ isn’t in hospital, he has been involved in raising over £2000 doing a variety of fundraising for the BHF and other charities.

Even though Mark has been through a lot he never fails to inspire everyone he meets whether in hospitals or at school.

He has made some amazing friends along the way as his cheery character affects everyone he comes in contact with!

Mark has been nominated for the British Heart Foundation NI Heart Hero Award 2017.

Ballykeel Primary would like to encourage local people to give Mark a vote.
