Thank You: Your support has helped to raise £34.4 million in the fight for every heartbeat

Charity shop clearing out

Thank you to those who have donated items, purchased goods or given their time to volunteer, you have all contributed to our shops’ success. 

The staggering amount raised by our shops helps to fund life saving research and helps pay for anything from a defibrillator for a community centre to a local heart support group.

Our Retail Director, Mike Taylor, said: “We’re truly overwhelmed with the ongoing generosity of of our shoppers, donors and volunteers across the UK. We’re so grateful to all our supporters and want to thank every single person who has joined us in the fight against heart disease.

“People often don’t realise that the sofa or dress they donate to or buy from their local BHF shop actually raises vital funds and helps pay for anything from a defibrillator for a community centre to a local heart support group.

“We couldn’t fund this life saving equipment or research without the support of the local community and we hope they will continue to support BHF shops for many years to come.”

Coronary heart disease (CHD) is the UK’s single biggest killer, causing approximately 73,000 deaths in the UK every year.
