Bluebird Care East Devon Supports Heart Month

Published: 22/05/2019

Bluebird Care East Devon supports Heart Month and the British Heart Foundation's 2016 Wear it. Beat it campaign.

Bluebird Care East Devon are supporting Heart Month and taking part in Wear it. Beat it. in aid of the British Heart Foundation on Friday 5th February.

February is Heart Month and this year the British Heart Foundation are urging people to take healthy steps to help improve their heart health as well as support their annual fundraiser, Wear it. Beat it.

There are currently seven million people in the UK living with cardiovascular disease, which includes heart attack and stroke. However, in many cases people can help reduce their risk of these conditions by improving their diet, doing more physical activity and quitting smoking.

Wear it. Beat it. takes place on the 5th February, during Heart Month. The day encourages people to ‘get red everywear’ in aid of the British Heart Foundation. By participating in Wear it. Beat it. we are helping to win the fight for every heartbeat by raising money to help the British Heart Foundation in:
  • Finding treatments that transform the lives of people with heart disease
  • Supporting over 1,000 pioneering research projects on heart and cardiovascular disease
  • Supporting BHF healthcare professionals to care for people

We are holding a special coffee morning on Friday 5th February to celebrate Heart Month, with all proceeds being donated to British Heart Foundation. Our coffee morning will be held from 10am to 11.30 am at our Ottery St Mary Office.

There will be a specially red themed Cake Sale and an opportunity to meet Care Workers and Office Staff from Bluebird Care East Devon.

All are welcome and we hope that you can join us for a cuppa and a slice of cake!
