Help spread some hope

People make Christmas, not gifts. However, whilst many of us will be enjoying the abundance of food and gifts at home with loved ones, others aren't so fortunate.

This Christmas, I’m asking you to think about the millions of families who have been torn apart by heart and circulatory diseases.

Up and down the UK, children are facing their first Christmas in hospital, parents are recovering from a life-changing stroke or vascular dementia diagnosis, and families are facing their first Christmas without a loved one.

By donating to the British Heart Foundation (BHF), you will be making a huge difference to help keep more families together. Donations will go towards funding life-saving research into heart and circulatory diseases.

The BHF receives no Government funding for research so scientists in universities and research centres rely hugely on donations to find new cures, treatments and ways to diagnose and prevent heart and circulatory conditions.
