Support the partnership that fights heart disease

Cardiovascular disease affects us all. Every five minutes someone is admitted to a UK hospital due to a heart attack.

Royal Brompton and Harefield Hospitals Charity is proud to be a part of The Heart of West London Partnership. Together we are raising funds to change the game for those at risk of heart disease.

Brentford FC, Brentford FC Community Sports Trust, Royal Brompton and Harefield Hospitals Charity, Cardiac Risk in the Young, Resuscitation Council UK, Pablo London and A-K-A Day, have come together with the goal to improve heart health and save lives.

Nity Raj, General Counsel at Brentford FC and Trustee of Brentford FC Community Sports Trust said:

At Brentford, to achieve success we have always tried to focus on the things that make the most difference, following the science and striving to make a positive impact in our community. This season we are applying that approach to cardiac health by bringing an alliance of organisations together in an initiative to bring about more scientific research, more cardiac screenings, encouraging more people to make positive changes in their lives and more CPR training, and as a result we will have a massive impact on fighting the world’s leading cause of death.

Brentford FC has generously agreed all donations made to the Partnership will be doubled. We have an ambitious target to raise £100,000, which will then be matched to £200,000, to fund research into cardiac conditions.

This research will save many lives and together we can change the game for people affected by heart disease. Richard Bowyer, Chief Executive of Royal Brompton and Harefield Hospitals Charity, said:

The Heart of West London Partnership is an incredible opportunity to save lives and improve the heart health of communities in West London. Everyone at Royal Brompton and Harefield Hospitals Charity is excited to partner with Brentford FC and other charities who are passionate about heart health, to change the game for people threatened by heart disease.

Heart and circulatory diseases cause around a quarter of all deaths in the UK, which is one death every three minutes, and 7.6m people are affected by cardiac health in the UK. By supporting this appeal, you will help save many lives. Thank you.
