British Heart Foundation Jersey
Heart and circulatory disease is a huge burden on people in the Channel Islands & across the UK. Each year heart and circulatory conditions, which include heart attacks and stroke, claim the lives of around one in four people in the Island with an average of 50 people a year whom die prematurely before the age of 75. The BHF Jersey Branch was founded in 1972 with the objective of raising funds to support the BHF’s lifesaving research which is central to discovering vital treatments for Islanders living with heart and circulatory conditions. Since launch, the branch has raised considerable sums for the fight against heart disease, some of which has been ploughed back into vital equipment and BHF nurses required in Jersey as part of the award winning Cardiac Team and Coronary Care Unit and Maternity Hospital. We work closely with the Jersey Heart Support Group and our mission is to support the life-saving research of the BHF, so that more Islanders can beat heart disease.
It’s a big problem, but with your help, the BHF are leading the fight against it.
