Heartbeat’s 2018 Winter Raffle

Celebrating 40 years with 40 cash prizes to give away!

2018 saw Heartbeat celebrate 40 years of service. That’s 40 amazing years supporting local people affected by heart disease.

It is your support that has allowed us to do this, and your support that keeps us going – thank you so much.

To celebrate this milestone and as a way of saying thank you, this years’ Winter Raffle will give away a top prize of £1,500 and 40 other cash prizes! This years’ raffle will see more prize winners than ever!!

Even if you buy just ONE ticket you will still be helping 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, and your support today, no matter how many tickets you buy, ensures that vital cardiac rehabilitation is available, when it is needed.

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

Heartbeat does not receive any government or NHS funding to do this. ALL our support is voluntary and it is only because of people like you that we are able to help more than 900 people every single week.

We know at this time of year you will be flooded with worthy charitable requests

There are so many good causes out there, and we know it is hard to donate to each and every one.

Our Winter Raffle tries to give you something back in return for your donation with 40 cash prizes up for grabs. So, if you can support us again in any way, please enter the Heartbeat Raffle and be in with a chance of winning a prize.

We don’t expect you to buy or sell ALL the raffle tickets enclosed

We’ve enclosed a book of raffle tickets for you to buy, or sell on to your family, friends and colleagues, BUT do not feel any pressure to buy or sell them all. Anything you can afford to do can make an amazing difference here at Heartbeat.

Just complete the form at the bottom of this letter and send it back together with your ticket stubs and payment in the FREEPOST envelope provided!

Send your replies back to us quickly, and you will be entered into an extra draw and could win a £50 M&S voucher – so don’t put it off, send your reply back to us today and get your tickets in the draw for Friday 7th December.

Good luck!!!

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!
