Charity of the Year

Main content

Choose Heart Research UK as your Charity of the Year and you and your staff will have the opportunity to hold healthy heart days and fundraising events while learning more about your organisation, our work and the wider charity sector.

Being your chosen Charity of the Year is a great honour.  It enables us to work with you throughout the year to fund pioneering research and shows that you believe in investing in staff wellbeing and helping hearts.  Some businesses have also tied their partnership into a reward scheme and volunteering opportunities for their staff.    

Choose us as your Charity of the Year and your dedicated account manager will keep in regular contact with you to make sure that you enjoy a positive and successful partnership and understand the opportunities we can provide.  Your account manager will also provide advice on promoting your Charity of the Year partnership and support you with your corporate fundraising events. For example, you might want to consider international challenges, local sponsored walks, runs and cycle rides, or parachute jumps and Sing for your Heart concerts. 

You could also get staff involved in your own events such as dress down days, coffee mornings and raffles.

Here is what some of our current partners say about us...

“Emerald chose to support Heart Research UK as their Charity of the Year and will be raising funds for the ‘Helping Little Hearts’ project, helping children with heart problems to receive the best possible rehabilitation after leaving hospital. Emerald is a global company, all keen to support the charity. Everyone is behind the company’s decision to support Heart Research UK and we’re looking forward to all the fundraising events we have planned” Melissa Fojt, Publisher at Emerald.

“Due to the franchise nature of the SUBWAY® brand, Heart Research UK works with over 2,000 SUBWAY® stores, supporting and working collaboratively with franchisees and head office to ensure that the partnership helps to raise awareness and funds for our Heart Research UK and SUBWAY® Healthy Heart Grants, which keeps growing each year due to its success.  SUBWAY® stores have had a relationship with Heart Research UK for the last five years and will continue to work with Heart Research UK in the future. We would definitely recommend them as a charity with passion, drive and most importantly, a big heart.” Sarah Cockwill, Marketing Manager SUBWAY® Stores.
