British Heart Foundation
We are the nation’s heart charity and the largest independent funder of cardiovascular research. Coronary heart disease is the UK’s single biggest killer but we are leading the fight against it. Our pioneering research has helped to transform the lives of people living with heart and circulatory conditions. Our work has been central to the discoveries of vital treatments that are helping to change the face of the UK’s fight against heart disease. We were founded in 1961 by a group of medical professionals wanting to fund extra research into the causes, diagnosis, treatment and prevention of heart and circulatory disease. Our research is powered by your support. Every pound raised, every minute of your time and every donation to our shops will help make a massive difference to people’s lives.
