Our partnership with the British Heart Foundation started in March 2017 and it’s our aim to raise £250,000 this year. The money will be used to help fund life-saving research into the causes, treatment and prevention of cardiovascular disease.
Coronary heart disease is the UK’s single biggest killer, everyone knows someone that has been affected in some way by heart issues. The BHF strives for a world where people do not die prematurely or suffer from cardiovascular disease. In fact, before the BHF was established, the chances of surviving a heart attack were poor whereas today around 7 in 10 people survive. The BHF invest in pioneering research, provide vital information and support heart patients across the UK.
Colleagues from stores across the UK and in the Store Support Office will be taking part in a number of the BHF’s signature events including DECHOX, MyMarathon, Wear It Beat It and Bag It Beat It, alongside running their own unique fundraising events. Carpetright is proud to have joined the fight for every heartbeat.
