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.
Following an amazing response of public nominations, the BHF Jersey Branch is proud to announce the finalists for the Island’s first Jersey Heart Awards being hosted at the Pomme d’Or Hotel on Saturday 4th March 2017.
As the first awards of its kind, Jersey Heart Awards have been designed by the British Heart Foundation to recognize the outstanding contribution of Islanders playing a leading role in the local fight against cardiovascular disease, one of Jersey’s biggest killers. Categories cover a range of different life-saving roles within the community, from those living with a condition and literally fighting the disease, to third-party individuals offering support and life-changing knowledge and advice to Islanders of all ages.
Summer Parkin, Fundraising Manager for the BHF in the Channel Islands commented “As well as fundraising for our life-saving research, there are a number of Islanders who go above and beyond to support and encourage healthy hearts within the community. Our mission is to win the fight against heart disease and Islanders play a massive part in this - so we would like to recognise those special people who have joined our battle against this heartless disease.”

Heart and circulatory disease claims the lives of around 155,000 people in the Channel Islands and the UK each year. Every pound raised will help the BHF fulfil its ambition to fund half a billion pounds of life saving heart research over the next five years, and bringing us ever closer to beating heart disease.
