Hearty Lives Hull
Premature death rates from coronary heart
disease (CHD) were significantly higher in Hull
than in the rest of Yorkshire and above average for the rest
1 in 6 deaths in Hull were due
to CHD when we first awarded funding for a Hearty Lives project in
Hearty Lives Hull is one of our £1.5
million programme in partnership with NHS Hull and Hull City
In April 2010 we set out to raise awareness of
heart disease, and motivate and challenge the
population of Hull to aspire to better heart health. The
programme will come to an end in October 2013.
Hearty Lives Hull has achieved to date:
people have accessed a range of fun physical
activities to date led by the Sports development team at Hull City
- In activity in 6
secondary schools across Hull, 26,320
participants have accessed a range of additional
learning opportunities, including eating well on a budget and
accessing ‘cook and eat’ classes. Heartstart life-saving skills are
now being taught as part of the menu of activities.
- An amazing 2,735
participants benefited from a city-wide visual arts and
creative writing project.
- 394 people
attended dance classes to explore their health beliefs sessions
were held in all the deprived wards identified using schools and
colleges in these places.
- Four films have been completed
including a documentary film and a very touching drama.
businesses in Hull have benefited, enabling us to offer
1,884 employees to date a ‘highway to health’
programme. This has been a huge success.

delivered sessions to 669 vulnerable groups.
We are hopeful that we have made a huge impact
and left a significant legacy which will be continued
long into the future.
