Brothers say thank you by taking on the London to Brighton Bike Ride.

After losing their mother to a heart attack, Alan and Christopher Watts are getting back on the saddle for a third time to support our life saving research.

Signing up to do the London to Brighton Bike Ride is our way of saying thank you for the charity’s dedication and it’s a fun way to raise much needed funds to help them carry on with their amazing work.

“The work done by the BHF is absolutely brilliant. Without them, research into cardiovascular diseases would not have come so far. We still miss our mother terribly after she passed away 23 years ago from a heart attack, but knowing that research has come on leaps and bounds since then, thanks to the BHF, gives us some comfort.

“Signing up to do the London to Brighton Bike Ride is our way of saying thank you for the charity’s dedication and it’s a fun way to raise much needed funds to help them carry on with their amazing work. 

“We are hopeful that through the vital research the BHF funds that one day there will be a cure for all heart and circulatory disease. By supporting the BHF through the London to Brighton Bike Ride we’re doing our bit to make sure this day finally comes and people won’t keep suffering from the pain of losing a loved one like we did.

Heart attack history

Our life saving research over the past 50 years has helped to revolutionise treatments which means that around 70% of people now survive a heart attack

But there is still so much more we can do. To help us fund our vital research, you can take part in the London to Brighton Bike Ride 2017. Help us ride all over heart disease.
