Heart Research UK

Volunteers needed to boost awareness

Help Heart Research UK build up the pace in Scotland by sharing their badges and displaying posters across your local area; playing your part in the future of Scottish medical research and taking on heart disease.

The Heart of Scotland Appeal is a fundraising campaign to raise and spend money in Scotland on vital medical research into the prevention, treatment and cure of heart disease. 41 people die every day in Scotland from cardiovascular disease and the death rate from coronary heart disease is almost 50% higher than for the South East of England. This isn’t fair and Heart Research UK want to change this.

Posters will be provided for you to display in your local shops, community centres, libraries, supermarkets, pharmacies and doctors surgeries to help us reach as many people as possible.
The Heart of Scotland Appeal is backed by internationally acclaimed Scottish fashion designer, Christopher Kane. Christopher has designed four unique badges featuring the words Love, Care, Brave and Life. A box of badges can be sent to you to sell to friends, family and colleagues for donations, as well as asking local shops if they will have a box of badges on their counter (that can be send out to them).

Join the network of volunteer Pace Makers and help get everyone wearing a Heart of Scotland badge.
