Welcome and thank you for visiting our blog. The British Heart Foundation Jersey Branch was established in 1972 to support the life saving research of the BHF. We have created this page to help Islanders keep up to date with local events, activities and ways in which you can support our local fight against heart disease.
It's nearly that time of year again, when we challenge Islanders to give up chocolate for the month of March!
Any sort of cocoa is a no-no, which means chocolate bars, sweets, treats, biscuits, ice cream, cake – and even the chocolate sprinkles on your cappuccino – are off limits during March.
Over the last two years, nearly 40,000 people have taken on the challenge to chuck the choc and raise money to fund our world class researchers. You really are a nation of true chocoholics and so DECHOX 2017 promises to be even bigger and better.
So, if you’ve ever found yourself sneaking a cheeky chocolate bar after the gym or digging into your desk drawer for an afternoon cupcake, then now’s the time to test your willpower, have fun and feel good in the process.
And if chocolate isn’t your thing, why not give up something else or challenge yourself to take on an ultimate DECHOX – not only is chocolate off limits, but all sweet treats are too!
