Thousands of generous fundraisers across the UK have joined the fight against heart disease by raising over £1.7m for our life saving research through our Do Your Own Thing campaign.

From fun runs and sponsored spin-a-thons, to charity quiz nights and bake sales, dedicated supporters across the country have been showing they’re all heart by organising their own fundraising events for our Do Your Own Thing campaign to help support our vital work.

These fantastic fun-filled events have been bringing together communities across the UK in the fight against heart disease, helping to raise over £1.7m last year for our ground breaking research

Last year, a record-breaking £12million was raised for us through community fundraising activities held across the UK, from heart patients going above and beyond to help us fight heart disease, to schools and social groups getting together to have fun and fundraise. 

Do your own fundraising

Heart and circulatory disease claims the lives of around 155,000 people across the UK – that’s around one person every three minutes.  

We rely on the enormous generosity of our supporters to continue our life saving work. Through the public’s generosity, we will fund half a billion pounds of new research over the next five years which will be central to discovering vital treatments for the 7million people living with heart and circulatory conditions. 

From zumbathons and treasure hunts, to fashion shows and cake sales, whichever way you choose to fundraise get together your friends and family and help make a difference to millions.
