British Heart Foundation is the UK's number 1 heart charity and through 50 years of funding cutting-edge research we have already made a big difference to people's lives.

But the landscape of heart disease is changing. More people survive a heart attack than ever before, and that combined with an ageing population means more people are now living with heart disease and need our help.
