Do you have a spare couple of hours each week or each month? Do you enjoy meeting people and like working as part of a team? Welsh Hearts are the heart charity for Wales and are looking for committed and organised people to help raise money for a local cause and be part of the fundraising committee. Welsh Hearts have recently launched The Dai Fib appeal which is fundraising across Wales to provide rural communities, schools and organisations with AED defibrillators and hospitals and medical centres with emergency life saving equipment.
All money raised by Welsh Hearts is spent in Wales.
If you can help in any way please call the fundraising office for more information on 02920 786521.
Shocking statistics state that the survival rate after a sudden Cardiac arrest outside of hospital is only 3%. Where a Defibrillator is used, the survival rate is 47%. In Wales there are approximately 8,000 sudden cardiac arrests outside hospital each year.
Welsh Hearts want to raise funds across Wales in rural communities, work places and schools in order that a defibrillator is positioned next to every fire extinguisher in Wales.
Welsh Hearts is also fundraising for cardiac equipment for hospitals and Medical Centers and supporting heart initiatives throughout Wales.
Cardiovascular disease accounts for a third of all deaths in Wales, where the death rate is higher than in the majority of countries in Western Europe.
Welsh Hearts is also keen to support research students wishing to follow a career in Cardiology research by making grants available for them to pursue postgraduate degrees.
