Last chance for Healthy Heart projects in London and the surrounding areas to get up to £10,000 healthy heart funding

Community groups in Greater London have just two weeks left to apply for a regional grant of up to £10,000 to help local people look after their hearts.

National charity Heart Research UK is urging groups to submit applications for the Heart Research UK and Subway® Healthy Heart Grant before 04 October.

The Heart Research UK and Subway® Healthy Heart Grant is available for new and innovative projects that promote healthy hearts and reduce the risk of heart disease in the community. Projects should demonstrate health initiatives such as cooking skills and healthy eating and should encourage people to move more and promote positive mental wellbeing.

The beneficiary of the grant in 2018 was the Centre of the Cell project at Queen Mary University of London, which provided education sessions and interactive workshops for primary school children in East London.

The £10,000 has been raised locally in Subway® stores throughout the Greater London area, and through the nationwide Subway Helping Hearts™ family 5K fun runs.

Sarah Mirfin, Healthy Heart Coordinator at Heart Research UK said: “At Heart Research UK we’re always looking to the future and thinking of new and improved ways of promoting heart health.

“We’re looking for a project that’s innovative, heart focused, engaging and makes an impact. If you have a great project idea and want our help to take on heart disease in your community, this is your last chance to apply.”

The deadline for applying is the 4th October and can be done by visiting https://heartresearch.org.uk/apply/healthy-hearts. For more information, please call 0113 234 7474 or email healthyheartgrants@heartresearch.org.uk
