2017 was a big year for Heart Research UK with not one but two special anniversaries.
We celebrated 10 years of HRUK in the Midlands with a very special evening at the Plough and Harrow Hotel in Birmingham.
Many of the charity’s closest supporters, partners, patrons and ambassadors from around the region were on hand to help us celebrate such a significant achievement. Guests were also given the opportunity to hear a presentation from our Chief Executive Barbara Harpham and TV personality and HRUK ambassador Sally Bee, featuring updates on many exciting projects.
The highlight of the evening was when John Lloyd, our Regional Executive, was presented with a cheque for £58,000 from Mr John Bill, our first patron in the Midlands. This donation along with other funds raised during the event, which included a silent auction, meant we raised £66,000 in just one night.
