Business Awards UK proud to support British Heart Foundation

Announcing Our Support of the British Heart Foundation for the 2024 Essex Regional Business Awards

It’s with great pride from all the team here at Business Awards UK that we’re able to announce we are supporting the British Heart Foundation (BHF), the leading funder of cardiovascular research in the UK. Our alignment with the BHF is rooted in support of their hard work advancing scientific discovery and public health initiatives that have a tangible impact on the lives of millions across the nation.

The British Heart Foundation’s dedication to combatting cardiovascular and circulatory diseases through research is unparalleled. Presently, they are supporting over 800 research projects across the UK, focusing on a wide range of conditions including heart attacks, congenital heart defects in newborns, and the interconnected nature of heart disease, stroke, vascular dementia, and diabetes. This broad spectrum of research underscores the critical role the BHF plays in enhancing our understanding and treatment of these life-threatening conditions.

A vital component of the BHF’s mission is to educate the public on life-saving skills, such as CPR, through innovative tools like RevivR. This commitment to public education is especially crucial considering the statistics surrounding out-of-hospital cardiac arrests in the UK, where survival rates are as low as 1-in-10. RevivR offers a free, accessible way for anyone to learn CPR in just 15 minutes, using simple tools like a cushion and a mobile phone or tablet. This initiative is a testament to the BHF’s proactive approach to equipping individuals with the knowledge and skills needed to potentially save lives in emergency situations.

Business Awards UK, via the 2024 Essex Business Awards is honoured to support the British Heart Foundation in its endeavours. We are particularly excited about promoting the RevivR tool within our network, believing in its potential to make a significant difference in emergency response situations. Through our partnership, we aim to raise awareness and encourage engagement with the BHF’s invaluable resources and training programs.
