Heart Research UK in the Midlands

Main content

Based in Birmingham, Heart Research UK in the Midlands works across the East and West Midlands.  Since opening in 2007, we've built up a big following of people across the region, making sure that money raised locally is spent helping hearts near you.

The team is headed up by John and Joanne and supported by a fantastic team of volunteers.  We get involved with fundraising, setting up local partnerships, reporting on progress made by projects funded through our medical research and community grants programme and advising the local community on heart health.

What's raised locally is spent helping hearts near you.  Our medical research projects in the region include a project at the Birmingham Children's Hospital that provided equipment to monitor babies at home after heart surgery.  Not only did it give valuable information to the doctors and nurses, it gave those looking after them at home peace of mind at a difficult and anxious time.  

Some of the fantastic fundraising events held in the Midlands include events showcasing musical talent like young singer, Lauren Alexander, Northern Soul nights that provide a nostalgic trip back in time, exhilarating dance with the John Carey Academy of Irish Dance, hamper raffles and good old fashioned bag packs - we're your local heart charity in the Midlands.
