Heart Research UK Midlands, proud to be helping hearts near you

We have a wonderful and dedicated team based in Birmingham.

Since 2007 they have been supported by a great volunteer base and have worked hand in hand with Midlands based corporate partners, groups and individuals who all want to raise money that is spent locally. With this support Heart Research UK has funded many community and medical research projects within the Midlands.

Midlands Regional Executive

As the Midlands Regional Executive since 2007, I feel fortunate that I was given the opportunity to work for a charity that has achieved so much over 5 decades. The local community and businesses have embraced what we continue to do in our region, which is reflected in their overwhelming generosity.

I joined the Midlands team in 2012 and am very proud to be a part of Heart Research UK’s achievements. The passion and generosity from the local community is always an inspiration and it’s a pleasure fundraising alongside them for pioneering medical research, ground-breaking training and education to improve heart health.

Jack Lloyd

Business Administration Apprentice

After starting as a volunteer at the young age of 14, I’m excited to have progressed to being Heart Research UK Midlands’ first ever apprentice. I’m proud to be able to contribute to a charity that not only funds pioneering medical research but also inspires communities to improve their heart health for themselves.

Heart in a Box
£265,000

A revolutionary organ care system which enables hearts to be transported from the donor to the patient while still being supplied with oxygen rich blood. This means that more hearts will still be viable when they reach the patient for a heart transplant.

Active Albion
£9,800

A programme aimed at Key Stage 2 Children in Sandwell and Dudley which provided ‘Keep Fit’ sessions using physical activity as a vehicle for learning about the need for a healthy heart. The project finished with a festival at West Bromwich Albion football club where outstanding performers earned a medal. Everyone was invited to take part in active workshops and then watched the football game.
