Herefordshire Heartstart are pleased to announce that  the Eveson Charitable Trust  have awarded the charity a grant of £3,000 to help towards the running costs of the charity for delivering courses in the community. This will enable us to continue teaching community Heartstart courses throughout Herefordshire.

Herefordshire Heartstart is a registered charity (no 1082309) established in 1996 and is affiliated to the British Heart Foundation to run free two hour How to save a life courses. These courses are available to anyone, to teach them the necessary skills to keep someone alive until the emergency services arrive.

This includes dealing with choking, serious bleeding, heart attack, unconsciousness and CPR (cardiopulmonary resuscitation).   These are simple skills that can and do save lives.

Herefordshire Heartstart is affiliated to the British Heart Foundation, but we are not funded by them nor the Government for our service. We are a local initiative helping the people of Herefordshire. We rely on donations and grants to keep this vital service running.
