For World Heart Day, British Seniors has launched a fundraiser to support a pioneering heart research charity.

Did you know cardiovascular disease causes 28% of UK deaths? It's the biggest killer in the UK - and we want to beat it. Today is World Heart Day 2015, so we've teamed up with the charity Heart Research UK to spread the word and raise funds for pioneering research.

Heart Research UK perform research into heart disease and, in particular, pioneering surgical techniques. They paid for six of the first eight successful UK heart transplants, and have given more than £10.6m to heart research projects in the last decade.

British Seniors have built a website to promote heart health – "Is Britain Eating Its Way Towards Heart Disease?" – and will donate £1 for everyone who shares the site on Facebook or Twitter. Our goal is for 5,000 shares on World Heart Day, raising a total of £5,000.

The website is packed with ways to assess your own heart health:

  • A map of the UK's heart disease hotspots
  • Easy recipe swaps to help you improve your diet
  • A free downloadable recipe book of heart healthy recipes

Please share our site and encourage your friends to do the same. With your support, we can help Heart Research UK to beat heart disease, once and for all.
