The British Heart Foundation appeals for North West businesses to join the fight against heart disease

COMPANIES across the North West are being encouraged to help beat heart disease in the local area by joining forces with the British Heart Foundation (BHF) - Europe's largest funder of heart and circulatory research.  Heart and circulatory disease kills nearly 160,000 people in the UK each year, stealing them away from families and loved ones. In the North West alone, close to 18,000 lives are lost to heart and circulatory disease and around 840,000 currently live with the burden of these devastating conditions

The BHF is calling on organisations across the region to help end this devastation by supporting the charity's lifesaving work and becoming an official charity partner. Last year, companies in the North West raised around ₤75,000, which will help BHF researchers identify revolutionary new ways to prevent, diagnose and treat heart and circulatory disease.  Companies can also play a vital role in helping the BHF create a nation of lifesavers. By training staff in how to perform lifesaving CPR, local businesses can empower colleagues with skills they need if someone suffers a cardiac arrest.

Michelle Bailey, BHF Fundraising Manager for the North West, said:- "Heart disease is heartless. Too many lives are lost in the North West each year, and we're determined to do everything we can to keep more families together. We urgently need more funds to help end the devastation caused by heart disease, which is why we're calling on the support of companies; large and small; across the region. Every pound raised through partnerships will help make a difference to the millions living with the terrible burden of heart disease."

BHF research has helped halve death rates from heart and circulatory disease over the past 50 years, but there is still a long way to go. Through the public's generosity the BHF will fund half a billion pounds of new research by 2020.  For more information on how the BHF works with corporate partners, as well as how your business can get involved, visit the BHF website.
