Fundraise in your community

Looking to get involved in your community? There's something for everyone; you can get involved by joining your local fundraising group, starting a new group or volunteering independently.

The Big Collection

This September we’re collecting across the country to raise money for life saving research into heart and circulatory disease. Give just two hours of your time to volunteer at a collection near you and you’ll help keep hearts beating and blood flowing.

Join a collection at your local Tesco store on the weekend of Saturday 15 and Sunday 16 September. Or help us mark World Heart Day on 29 September with even more collections.


Community fundraising is a great way to meet new people, have fun and get out and about in your local community.

You will help raise awareness of heart disease in your local community and importantly support our life saving research.
