The Irish Heart Foundation needs your help to fight heart disease

The Irish Heart Foundation is urging the public to join them this Valentine’s Day in the fight against one of Ireland’s biggest killers – heart disease.

Through its #ShowSomeHeart campaign, the Irish Heart Foundation is asking people to make a donation to the charity which will help fund its life-saving programmes and the fight to eliminate heart disease in Ireland.

All funds raised this Valentine’s Day will allow the charity to continue offering free heart health checks in local communities, free CPR training in schools and communities and support groups for people affected by heart disease.

“This year we’re offering you the chance to make Valentine’s Day really mean something,"

Mr Tim Collins, CEO , The Irish Heart Foundation

Mr Tim Collins, CEO of the Irish Heart Foundation. said “Each year, nearly 10,000 people in Ireland die from heart disease, leaving behind devastated families and communities. 80 per cent of premature deaths from heart disease can be prevented and that’s what all of us at the Irish Heart Foundation are working to achieve.”

“This year we’re offering you the chance to make Valentine’s Day really mean something. With your support, we can continue to train, inform and support the people of Ireland to live healthier lives and prevent premature death and suffering from heart disease.”

Valentine’s Day will also see Irish Heart Foundation volunteers packing bags in Dunnes Stores supermarkets across the country and friends and rivals challenging each other to ‘The Perfect Match‘ with proceeds going towards the Irish Heart Foundation.

Please make Valentine’s Day mean something and help the Irish Heart Foundation beat heart disease.
