The British Heart Foundation (BHF) is calling on the people of Rugby to help accelerate the fight against heart disease by starting a new fundraising group.

Around 10,020 people in Rugby are fighting a daily battle with heart and circulatory disease. Each year these devastating conditions claim the lives of around 220 people in the area alone.

Donna Stokes, BHF Fundraising Manager for Warwickshire said: “Heart disease is heartless. Too many lives are lost in Rugby each year, and we’re determined to do everything we can to protect more families from this devastation.

“By starting up a fundraising group you can help us fund the research that’s so desperately needed to bring us closer to beating heart disease. Together we can save more lives, and it’s a fantastic way to meet new people and make a real difference in your community!”
