Two weeks left for community groups to apply

Community groups in Anglia have just two weeks left to apply for a regional grant of up to £10,000 to help local people look after their hearts. The national charity Heart Research UK is urging groups to submit applications for the Heart Research UK and Subway® Healthy Heart Grant before the deadline.

The Grant is available for new and innovative projects that promote healthy hearts and reduce the risk of heart disease in the community.

Projects should demonstrate health initiatives such as cooking skills and healthy eating and should encourage people to move more and promote positive mental wellbeing.

Sarah Mirfin, Healthy Heart Coordinator at Heart Research UK, said:

“At Heart Research UK we’re always looking to the future and thinking of new and improved ways of promoting heart health.

“We’re looking for a project that’s innovative, heart focused, engaging and makes an impact. If you have a great project idea and want our help to take on heart disease in your community, this is your last chance to apply.”

The £10,000 has been raised locally in Subway® stores throughout Anglia, and through the nationwide Subway Helping Hearts™ family 5K fun runs. The beneficiary of the grant in 2018 was the Peterborough Environment City Trust. They encourage healthy eating and more active lifestyles for local residents.

The deadline for applying is the 4th October and can be done by visiting Healthy-Hearts.
