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”
