Their support has a huge impact to our life-saving work. For many they have a personal connection to the cause and choose to get involved through our events, support of our health campaigns or donating generously to our shops. We are incredibly grateful to these famous faces who give us so much of their time and effort. Together they are helping us win the fight against cardiovascular disease.

If you’re keen to discuss supporting us we’d love to hear from you. Please contact Shosh Kazab, Ambassador Consultant via email
