Saddlers raise funds for British Heart Foundation

7 February 2019

Walsall FC joined forces with the British Heart Foundation to raise over £100 for their life-saving research.

Members of office staff donated unwanted items to the charity as part of a ‘Bring a Bag to Work’ initiative, for them to be used and sold in British Heart Foundation stores.

A whole host of items were donated, with the club raising an estimated £120 in the space of a few weeks.

Katherine Highway, Stock Generator at the British Heart Foundation, was delighted with the final outcome.

“It has been a pleasure to work alongside Walsall Football Club,” she commented.

“We are overwhelmed with the support they have given us during this campaign and we can’t thank the staff enough for their donations.

“With the support from Walsall Football Club, we have managed to raise an estimated £120 towards life-saving research, which is fantastic and something we are very appreciative of.”

The charity is regularly in demand for donations from the public, with the proceeds going a long way towards finding cures and treatments for heart and circulatory diseases.

Highway added: “Your support will help us continue our pioneering research in the fight against heart and circulatory disease, stroke, vascular dementia and diabetes.

“You'll also be helping to train up a nation of life savers, with the skills to perform CPR and improve survival rates for out-of-hospital cardiac arrest in your community and across the nation.”

We would like to place on record our thanks to Katherine and we look forward to building our relationship further in the near future.
