We are the UK's number one heart charity and through 50 years of funding cutting edge research we have already made a big difference to people's lives.
But the landscape of heart disease is changing. More people survive a heart attack than ever before, and that combined with an ageing population means more people are now living with heart disease and need our help.
Our retail shops help raise funds to fight heart disease through selling generously donated items from the general public. Many of the people helping run our stores are volunteers, and we rely on their selfless help to keep our stores running.
