Community Fundraising Group Member

Why does the BHF need me?

Here at the British Heart Foundation (BHF) we want to beat heartbreak forever from the world’s biggest killers. Heart and circulatory diseases kill 1 in 4 in the UK and 7 million people are living with heart and circulatory diseases in the UK.

Our Community Fundraising Groups consist of volunteers who come together in their local communities to hold exciting fundraising events, raise awareness and have a lot of fun while they do it!  Fundraising Groups are the face of the British Heart Foundation in their local community; when volunteering in a Fundraising Group, you will have fun and make new friends, all the while raising money for life saving research. 

By becoming a Fundraising Group member, you are joining an empowered network of dedicated volunteer fundraisers who help the BHF to keep hearts beating. We aim to invest £100 million each year into lifesaving research and we could not do this without our dedicated volunteers.
