Cabot Financial has selected the British Heart Foundation, the biggest independent funder of cardiovascular research in the UK, as its new corporate charity partner for 2019. The partnership will help in the charity’s aim of increasing awareness of heart and circulatory disease, raising funds for vital research into heart and circulatory conditions as well as train Cabot colleagues in the lifesaving first aid, CPR. Kim Brophy, BHF Fundraising Manager for Kent said; ” I am delighted that we have been chosen by this award winning company to help fight the UK’s biggest killer, the staff have a great legacy of successful fundraising and we are looking forward to working together in 2019″.
Currently, a quarter of all deaths in the UK are a result of heart and circulatory disease. The British Heart Foundation is a prominent nationwide charity funding lifesaving research to help end the heartbreak for the seven million people in the UK living with heart and circulatory disease. For over 50 years it has pioneered research that has transformed the lives of people living with heart and circulatory conditions and has been pivotal to offering vital treatments that are changing the fight against heart disease.
Working together, the partnership will also highlight the small changes people can make to their lifestyles that can have a very real impact on their heart and circulatory system.
Speaking about the new partnership; Derek Usher, Managing Director at Cabot Financial, said: “Our new corporate charity partner is one that is close to many within Cabot Financial, with many staff having a personal reason to support the BHF. This partnership not only raises vital funds for research but also encourages colleagues to assess their own health and equip them with vital life skills.”
