Sing for your Heart

Sing, donate, nominate!

Sing for your Heart is a social media campaign, raising money to fund Heart Research UK’s pioneering work in medical research and training.
Ground-breaking medical research has helped 7 million people in the UK live with cardiovascular disease, but still 70,000 people die from coronary heart disease every year and more research is needed. Coronary heart disease is the UK’s single biggest killer and more medical research is needed to help people live healthier, happier, longer lives.

About the campaign

Sing for your Heart is a social media campaign that will see celebrities and the public upload a short video of themselves singing, before nominating up to three friends and donating just £3 for Heart Research UK. Think Ice Bucket Challenge but with singing not freezing cold water – well it is December!
Heart disease can affect anybody of any age, but with research we are helping people live happier, longer lives.

It doesn’t matter if you’re a good singer or a bad one, a celebrity or an enthusiastic amateur, Sing for your Heart will get you in the festive mood and spread some Christmas cheer as well as raise money. Sing, donate and nominate and know that the money you raise will help fund research to help youngsters like Jaxon.

Who we are

Heart Research UK funds pioneering medical research into the prevention, treatment and cure of heart disease with a focus on research which benefits patients as quickly as possible.

We train the experts of tomorrow by funding unique Masterclasses for surgeons to ensure they are trained in the latest pioneering techniques. We also offer Healthy Heart Grants to help communities to live healthier lifestyles and have developed children’s exercise prescriptions to help children who have undergone heart surgery or are living with a heart condition to keep their hearts healthy.
