Join the Heartbeat Lottery!

The Heartbeat lottery is essential to Heartbeat, allowing us to provide our services to those affected by cardiovascular disease.

We are always looking for people to play the lottery and over the next few weeks our fundraisers will be out and about in Preston and the surrounding areas to knock on doors and chat to people about our lottery.

For £1 a week the Heartbeat lottery gives you ten chances to win a top prize of £1,000 plus other cash prizes, and at the same time you are helping local people affected by heart disease.

If you don’t already play the Heartbeat lottery, we’d love you to join us and be in with a chance of winning a cash prize.

We may be knocking on your door very soon!

Ranvir’s mission to spread the word

Ranvir’s mission to spread the word about Heartbeat

Patron: TV Presenter Ranvir Singh has just become patron of Heartbeat

Patron: TV Presenter Ranvir Singh has just become patron of Heartbeat

TV star Ranvir Singh is ecstatic to have been asked to become the patron of Preston charity Heartbeat.

The Deepdale based heart charity has developed a special relationship with the TV presenter due to her own family experiences of heart problems.

My dad was only 42 when he died and this place genuinely cares for people and can save their lives.

Ranvir Singh

 

Ranvir was only nine years old when her father Rattan died of a heart attack aged just 42.

And now the Preston born journalist is pleased to become a patron to help spread the word of the charities life-saving work.

She said: “I was really surprised when I was asked.

“I’m really chuffed to become patron.

“My dad was only 42 when he died and this place genuinely cares for people and can save their lives.

“Heartbeat really makes sure if people have a scare they will get back to their full health.

“My dad didn’t have that facility and we suffered the consequences as a result,

“Now 28 years later Heartbeat can help stop another young person losing their dad.”

Ranvir attended the opening of the cardiac rehabilitation charity’s new base at the old national football museum site outside Preston North End’s stadium back in February.

And Jill Rogerson, Heartbeat Chief Executive, is overjoyed that Ranvir has agreed to become a patron.

She said: “We are delighted that Ranvir has agreed to become our patron, she understands first-hand the effect heart disease can have on families.

“Having been brought up in Preston, Ranvir understands the issues facing some of our cultural communities where one out of three residents will develop heart problems.

“As a Prestonian herself we knew she would want to help”

Heartbeat NWCC gain Gold Award

Heartbeat NWCC - Cardiac Smart Gold Award - Sian Edwards

Heartbeat NWCC gains second CardiacSmart Gold Award

Heartbeat NWCC had to fulfil specific criteria to gain their second GOLD CardiacSmart award.  The aim of the CardiacSmart award is to recognise local business’ and community groups for their dedication to raising awareness of heart health, basic life support and defibrillators.

Are you CardiacSmart?

The CardiacSmart initiative, born from the Chain of Survival Partnership, works to extend the blanket coverage of public access Automated External Defibrillators (AEDs) and provide more individuals with training in basic life support; in order to improve a cardiac arrest victim’s chance of survival.

Around 30,000 people suffer a cardiac arrest outside of hospital each year, and with every minute a person does not receive treatment their chance of survival decreases by 10%.  Cardiac arrest is the most extreme case of an emergency, as the patient loses consciousness at once and there are no signs of life.  Defibrillators give an electric shock through the chest wall and help to restore a normal heartbeat.

No one knows who will suffer from cardiac arrest, but what is known is that the speed of response, Cardio Pulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) and defibrillation within the first few minutes will improve the patient’s chance of survival and recovery.

Sian Percival-Edwards, said “We are very proud to have won our second Cardiac Smart Gold Award.  We have worked hard over the past 24 months to promote and deliver the simple skills that can help save someone’s life”

Our achievements 2013-2015:

  • We sit on the NWAS Chain of Survival committee steering group
  • Delivered first aid to 677 members of the public
  • 696 school children have received first aid training
  • We deliver fully certified first aid training ( Awareness, Level 2 and 3 courses)
  • We deliver annual Clinical First Aid Training for GP’s
  • We have helped place 20 AED’s within Lancashire and the Fylde
  • 90% of our staff are trained in CPR and AED
  • We have AED’s at all of our outreach sites (Leyland Sports Centre, Penwortham Leisure Centre, Burscough Leisure Centre, Chorley Leisure centre, UCLan sports complex, Ribby Hall and Blackpool Leisure Centre)

 

How we can help you?

  • Automated External Defibrillator – We are working very closely with the North West Ambulance Service (NWAS) and PhysioControl, Zoll, Cardiac Science and Green Urban to try and place Defibrillators throughout Lancashire (and beyond).  We have a number of AED packages available, whether you’re just looking to purchase a defibrillator, external housing unit for your defibrillator, advice or if you require some professional training.
  • Heartstart – We provide Heartstart Training in partnership with the British Heart Foundation to teach you what to do in a life-threatening emergency – simple skills that save lives. To learn the simple skills that save lives, contact us on 01772 717147 or info@heartbeat-nwcc.org.uk to book onto one of our sessions. Sessions are free of charge.
  • HSE approved first aid courses – We run level 2 and 3 courses on site to suit your business needs.

Appeal for help with cash collections

Appeal for help with cash collections

This is an appeal to find volunteers in the community to help Heartbeat raise vital funds throughout 2017.

We have lots of collections booked in this year at local supermarkets.  We have a rota for each collection and ask volunteers to help out with one or two hour shifts to help man the collection. You can bring a friend, sit or stand.  If you are able to give an hour of your time this year Heartbeat would be very grateful.

In one hour we can raise anything up to £60, every penny counts.

Heartbeat needs to raise £800,000 to run the services this year alone.  We need your help and support to make this possible. Every penny and pound we raise will be put to good use.

Last year Heartbeat’s wonderful volunteers collected a whopping £7,577.71 as opposed to £7,016 in 2015.  If you have a local corner shop or business, why not ask if they would take one Heartbeat’s collection tins.  If you are able to spare any time to help with a store collection or could place one of our collection tins please contact Lynn (lynn.preston@heartbeat-nwcc.org.uk).

VOLUNTEERS NEEDED!

Store Collections for 2017

Ray Butler gives something back to Heartbeat

Ray Butler taking on Preston’s Guild Wheel

Ray Butler gives something back to Heartbeat

Avid Heartbeat supporter and service user Ray Butler has raised a wonderful £425 by taking on Preston’s Guild Wheel.

Ray wanted to take on a challenge to give something back to Heartbeat after attending heart rehabilitation classes for the last 25 years as well as celebrating his 70th birthday.

On Saturday 30th May Ray along with friend Tim Eaves took on the mighty 21 mile guild wheel on foot. During the route they were joined by a fellow class member John Beetham and Heartbeat Staff Karen Gildert and Carl Martinez.

 

Ray said –

“I would like to thank all those that have kindly sponsored me. I didn’t expect to raise as much as I have. Walking is something I really enjoy doing so being able to do it and give something back to the charity that has helped me keep a good level of fitness after my heart attacks was fantastic”

 

 

 

Lisa Riding Heartbeat Fundraiser –

“On behalf of us all here at Heartbeat I would like to thank Ray and his team for taking part in the challenge and for raising this wonderful amount for Heartbeat. Fundraising has never been so important to Heartbeat, with our recent move to PNE we are looking to increase our services within the local community and reach out to more people suffering from or at risk of cardiovascular disease.”

If like Ray you would like to support Heartbeat by taking up your own personal challenge or by organising your own fundraising event we would love to hear from you. Please contact Lisa Riding in the fundraising office on 01772 717147 or email lisa.riding@heartbeat-nwcc.org.uk
