Annual Review 2010

“How can we make a difference?”

That was the simple question the medical professionals who founded the British Heart Foundation (BHF) in 1961 asked themselves. They knew more and more people were dying from heart and circulatory disease and it was time to act.

LadderJust by asking and answering that question and inspiring others from all walks of life to do the same, we have made extraordinary progress.

Nearly 50 years later, with your support and generosity, the advances made against heart disease are far beyond anything our founders could have imagined. There is still a long way to go.

But when determined, resourceful people work together to reach a common goal - it’s amazing what can be achieved.

Real progress is made and measured by people like those featured in this year’s Annual Review. Read about different people's achievements by clicking their pictures above.
