It’s our 40th Birthday!


Heartbeat have been caring for and rehabilitating people of the North West for 40 years!

Heartbeat was founded in 1978 by Keith and Rose Redman who sadly lost their teenage daughter, Gillian, to heart disease.

Keith and Rose recognised the need to develop support and enhanced rehabilitation for people affected by heart disease post hospital discharge.

This pioneering approach to cardiac rehabilitation has provided support to thousands of people over Heartbeat’s 40 year history.


So we’re going to make 2018 a very special year, full of fundraising celebrations, activities and even a world record attempt!

We have a huge goal of raising an additional £40k, we would like you to be part of our celebrations.

Keep your eye on our website over the up and coming months!

Charity Fundraising Ball in aid of Heartbeat

Reg Johnson Dinner 3

On 18th November a sumptuous dinner organised as a tribute to legendary poultry farmer the late Reg Johnson, the man who got the country’s top chefs to prefix their duck and chicken dishes with the word Goosnargh to put the village on the culinary map, turned out to be a real menu pleaser not just for its 320 guests but also, his two favourite charities.

The event, held at Blackburn Rovers’ Ewood Park ground last November, raised £20,000 for the Reg Johnson Foundation, which has now been equally divided between Rosemere Cancer Foundation and cardiac rehabilitation charity Heartbeat, which is based at Preston North End’s Deepdale ground.

Reg’s daughter Kara Johnson and family friend Norma Scott met with Rosemere’s Louise Grant and Heartbeat’s Louise Bache at Deepdale to present each with their share.

Kara and Norma were also the dinner’s organisers, helped by another of Reg’s close friends, Northcote’s Michelin-starred chef Nigel Haworth.

On behalf of Heartbeat Lisa Riding the senior fundraising officer said – “I would also like to thank Norma, Kara and all those that supported the Reg Johnson Foundation at the event which raised this amazing amount for two local charities. Heartbeat is the North West Cardiac Rehabilitation Centre based within Preston North End with outreach sites over Preston, Blackpool and Chorley”

2018 is extremely significant for Heartbeat as it celebrates 40 years serving the local community. The money raised from this event will go towards the much-needed funds which enables Heartbeat to provide rehabilitation classes to over 900 people per week which currently costs over 1 million pounds per year. Visit to find out more about Heartbeat and its work in the local community.

The Reg Johnson Foundation was set up in Reg’s memory following his death two years ago.

Michelle Hunt, head of fund-raising at Heartbeat, in Preston, said: “We would like to thank all the pupils involved. They raised £200 in donations which will be used to help fund the work of Heartbeat. One in four people in Lancashire are affected by heart disease and it is thanks to the support of local people that a service like Heartbeat exists.”

Raffle Winners

Thank you to everyone who took part and supported us!!

This Christmas by joining in our Winter Raffle YOU have helped local people affected by heart disease.

In the UK, someone has a heart attack every 3 minutes, that’s nearly 500 people every single day.

But more people experience heart attacks at Christmas than at any other time of the year.

During December and into January there is a huge increase in the number of people having heart attacks, and your support today ensures that the vital cardiac rehabilitation that they need is available, when they need it.

Family Christmas

Heartbeat needs to raise nearly £1 million every year to provide cardiac services.

The charity does not receive any government or NHS funding to do this.

ALL support is voluntary and it is only because of people like you that we are able to help more than 800 people every single week.

EVERY ticket sold really has made a difference helping local people affected by heart disease to rebuild their lives.

Without your support this would not be possible, thank you.
