Our new statistics show that we’re a generous nation, why not arrange a fundraising event to help power our life saving research?

We surveyed 2,000 people to uncover how the nation likes to raise money and found that the fundraiser of choice was getting everyone together for a coffee morning (22%), whilst others favoured a quiz (15%) or being bake-off inspired with a cake sale (15%).  

When it came to who to invite to a fundraiser, almost half of people said that family members came top of their guest list (45%) whilst over a quarter preferred to raise money in the workplace (27%).  

We’re encouraging everyone the nation to do their own fundraising by organising their own fundraising event to help accelerate the fight against heart disease

Jacqulyn Bell, who works in Community Fundraising at the BHF, said: “We never cease to be amazed by the ways people come together to raise money for our fight against heart disease.  

“Whether you choose to hold a coffee morning, hold a fashion show or sit in a bath of baked beans, you will help fund research that makes a huge difference to the 7million people living with heart and circulatory disease in the UK.
