Get involved

Join the challenge

As well as asking for donations, we would love people to join us for our challenges. Having friends, family and supporters by our sides during the hard miles will ease the blisters and make everything a lot more enjoyable.

It doesn’t matter if you’ve never taken part in an event like these before, there’s something for everyone – whether the last time you saw a pair of trainers was during PE at school or if you think nothing of knocking off an ultra-marathon at the weekends. Simply have a look at a challenge you’re interested in and email us. You could even get your friends, family or business to sponsor you.

Or even better, choose something you would like to do instead and raise money for the Helping Hearts appeal yourself. It could be a more manageable physical event, a coffee morning, car boot sale or pub quiz – every penny is hugely appreciated, and if we can join you, we will.

Challenge your business

Maybe your company hasn’t yet chosen a local charity to raise money for this year, or the accounts department is taking part in a fundraising event and is looking for a worthy cause. Please, drop the Helping Hearts appeal into the conversation. Sowing that seed might just make the biggest difference to people with heart problems in Bristol.

If you’re the boss of a business, take a look at the link to our 1 in 1,000 pledge. You have the power to do the greatest good.

So let us know if you want to join a challenge or help. Email us at
