Your support saves lives

Rotherham is one of a number of communities in the UK with high levels of heart disease. 

Chrish Perera, our Head of Community Fundraising in the North of England said: "Our pioneering research has helped revolutionise the treatment of heart attacks and other cardiac conditions. Coronary heart disease is still one of the UK’s biggest killers.

"Through this exciting project, your name – or that of a loved one – will power research that will save lives across the region and around the world."

For over 50 years the BHF has pioneered research that has transformed the lives of millions of people. Our work drives vital treatments that are changing the fight against heart disease, become part of Yorkshire history and make a donation to the Heart of Steel project
