Welsh Hearts

Welsh Hearts is the leading heart charity in Wales for placing defibrillators in communities and delivering CPR and defibrillator training in Wales. They are regarded as the heart charity at the centre of saving lives in Wales. Cardiovascular disease accounts for a third of all deaths in Wales, where the death rate is higher than in the majority of countries in Western Europe.

MISSION

  • To provide public-access defibrillators in Wales in close partnership with strategic partners
  • To provide FREE defibrillator and CPR training for the Welsh public
  • To ensure that monies raised in Wales are utilised and distributed within Wales on specific heart related projects.

VISION

A future where nobody in Wales dies prematurely from heart disease.

Welsh Hearts has been established as a fundraising organisation to help save lives in Wales.

 

Through the Love Snowdon Challenge Breese Adventures are aiming to help Welsh Hearts fundraise £7,000 to hold their first heart screening session in North Wales.

At least 12 young people die every week of undiagnosed heart disease in the UK. Through heart screening heart disease can be diagnosed and treated to help save lives.
