Helping Rehab with some fundraising fun!
We need your help!
With the ongoing COVID restrictions in place, our events schedule has taken a bit of a bashing, which has meant that income for the charity is not as we had planned. Without our events to raise funds, we will not able to offer as many fitness sessions and support to people as we had hoped. And after 18-months of disruption to heart health services, our Rehab and Staywell sessions are needed more than ever.
We are asking our supporters for their help to bridge the gap.
There are so many ways for you to help us whilst we are unable to hold our usual fundraising events.
Can you organise your own event or host a Hearty Party?
In the past our supporters have organised and run dances, opened their gardens, sold plants, held summer barbeques, organised musical performances, quizzes, beauty evenings, coffee mornings and many other similar events to raise money for Cardiac Rehab.
Or perhaps you have a milestone celebration coming up? Hosting a Hearty Party is a great opportunity to catch up and have fun with friends and family while helping us raise much needed funds. Instead of gifts you might like to ask for donations to Cardiac Rehab.

How many people living in your village are currently attending the Cardiac Rehab Centre? In the past local villages have organised Village Fetes, Cricket Days, Football Matches, Golf Tournaments, Tug-of-War etc., to raise funds for Cardiac Rehab. When the COVID restrictions finally lift, it would be great way to rebuild community relationships, and give some back to Cardiac Rehab!
Could you, or maybe your children or grandchildren, take part in a Challenge to raise funds for ‘your’ heart charity – Cardiac Rehab?
To set up your own fundraising page, please visit our Virgin Media page and click on the “Start fundraising” button. And don’t forget to email us about your challenge too! We love hearing how you are getting on and sharing your photos. Please get in touch – firstname.lastname@example.org
Could you, or your local village shop/hostelry, be a guardian of a Cardiac Rehab donation tin? Donation tins are a valuable promotional tool for Cardiac Rehab and a great way to get rid of loose change. We can deliver to and collect from you if you would like to host them.
Car Boot Sales
Many people have taken advantage of the lockdown to have a clear out. Do you still have boxes of items that are too good to take to the tip? If so, why not take them along to a local Car Boot Sale and ask for donations to your favourite local charity – Cardiac Rehab!
Charity of the year
Does your company, or your employer, have a charity that they nominate as their charity of the year. Lots of companies raise money through various fundraising activities throughout the year and donate these to their charity of the year. If you would like to nominate Cardiac Rehab as your charity of the year please contact Denise Ellis, the Centre Manager, who will be pleased to provide information about the charity and the service we provide for local people with, and at risk of, heart disease.
