Fundraise at work

Organising your own fundraising event may seem a bit daunting, but we can help you have fun, stay safe and attract support to make your event a real success. 

Could you encourage your company to get involved and help to raise funds for HEART UK?  

Have a look at some of our ideas below:

Great Cholesterol Climb- National Cholesterol Month 2019

The Great Cholesterol Climb is our flagship fundraising initiative this year and your chance to reduce the risk of high cholesterol yourself whilst raising money to support the national fight against high cholesterol. We are challenging you and your work colleagues to take on our virtual challenge and climb a whooping 13,177 steps UP which is the equivalent of climbing ten of Britain’s tallest buildings!

But don’t worry – if this target is a little too steep, you can take it on as a team or just choose which of the buildings you want to take on. The fundraising target is £150 for each participant and we’ll be here to provide you with resources, fundraising ideas and moral support to help you reach and surpass that target with ease.

 As well as raising money and awareness for HEART UK, you’ll be doing your own heart a huge favour.  Climbing steps is a great way to get fit and can help keep cholesterol levels at bay. To find out more and to register for the challenge, email fundraising@heartuk.org.uk

Dare to be different

You’ve heard of dress down Fridays, well now there’s dress differently days too! The idea is really simple. Choose a day, create a theme, and encourage everyone to wear the weird, the wild, the wacky and the ridiculous. Dress up, dress down, swap clothes and dare to be different.

And a whole lot more!
