Heart charity appeals for Harrogate residents to join the fight against heart disease
28 March @ 6:00pm - 7:00pm
BHF urges people to join local fundraising group to raise funds for research
The British Heart Foundation (BHF) is calling on the people of Harrogate to help accelerate the fight against heart disease by joining their local fundraising group and raising money for lifesaving research.
Around 20,700 people across Harrogate are fighting a daily battle with heart and circulatory disease. Each year these devastating conditions claim the lives of more than 458 people in Harrogate alone.
The nation’s heart charity is calling on people across Harrogate to take heart and join the fight against heart disease by becoming part of their local fundraising group and raising vital funds for heart research.
Our fundraising groups are the face of the BHF in their local communities. From running fundraising events to supporting schools and local businesses and organising collections, they are a fantastic way to support our vital work.
Any time that you can give will be invaluable, because every pound raised from our fundraising groups will help fund vital research and identify new treatments that could help save lives.
Jane Mooney BHF Fundraising Manager for North Yorkshire will be holding a meeting for all supporters who are interested in joining the group on 28 March 2017 6pm till 7pm at The Pit in Harrogate. If you are interested in coming along please contact Jane Mooney on 01423 528360 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
BHF research has helped halve death rates from heart and circulatory disease over the past 50 years, but there is still a long way to go. Through the public’s generosity the BHF will fund half a billion pounds of new research over the next five years.
