Tonight we’re hosting our Beating Hearts Ball at London’s iconic Guildhall, supporting research into inherited heart conditions.

We were joined by BHF Ambassador @sarahferguson15 and a host of other celebrity supporters and beneficiaries for an evening of fundraising and entertainment.

A big thank you to everyone who attended the event and for helping us raise awareness about heart disease and our work with the #MilesFrostFund

We know that preparing for #LondonToBrighton can be tricky so we asked our Cycling Ambassador, Team GB cyclist, Andy Tennant, to share his top tips!
Head over to our London to Brighton hub to hear more from Andy: bhf.org.uk/l2b18

Little Wren has gone through more than most babies her age. Read about her heart journey.
Wren was born with a congenital heart condition called ventricular septal defect. This meant that she had a hole in the wall between the lower left and right chambers of the heart which causes extra blood flow to the lungs.
Wren needed to have open heart surgery four months ago, and she’s now gone on to make a good recovery.
Proud mum, Shauni, said: “We are so thankful that research and awareness of this defect means we still have our little girl. Yet it’s not enough as still lots of babies don’t make it.” Thanks to your support, we are funding research to help babies like Wren born with congenital heart conditions.

Valentines Day may be over, but love is still in the air for one of our amazing shop volunteers!
Sheffield-based volunteer Yvonne, placed a love note in the store’s window which read: ‘To my darling Stewart, will you marry me?’ Yvonne’s boyfriend Stewart saw the note and to her delight, said ‘yes’ to the proposal!
We wish the newly-engaged couple a very happy future together! ❤️💍

Holly and Mark’s daughter, Ivy, was born with a congenital heart condition called Transposition of the Great Arteries, meaning that the two main arteries leaving her heart the wrong way round.
She underwent surgery when she was just a few days old. The operation was a success and now Ivy is enjoying life back at home with her mum and dad.
Mark and Holly have been busy raising money for the BHF and recently held a fantastic cake sale which brought in £150 for our life saving heart research!

We’re delighted to announce that we now hold The Guinness World Records Title for the longest chain of paper hearts!
On Monday, we recruited an army of volunteers to help us string the 17,939 hearts together at London Metropolitan University. Our chain was over one and a half miles long and was the equivalent of 27 football pitches in length.
Over the last month our 720 shops have been encouraging customers to add their love notes and we’ve had submissions from some of our celebrity supporters including Ulrika Jonsson, Esther Rantzen and Gaby Roslin. Each heart features a personal message for loved ones, people battling heart disease or in memory of those they’ve lost.
A huge thank you to everyone who added their love note to our record-breaking total and to all of our amazing volunteers who helped us to achieve the record!

Read how @charlotteclarkeuk overcame heart problems to have a successful career in the fitness industry.
When Charlotte was 14, she started experiencing heart palpitations, but was never given a full diagnosis.
In 2010 Charlotte started a dance degree and the palpitations started to get in the way of her classes. They often lasted up to three hours at a time and she would sometimes briefly pass out as her heart fell back into its normal rhythm.
After an ECG test, doctors diagnosed Charlotte with Supraventricular Tachycardia and she was told she couldn't have baths or ride bikes on the road because of the condition.
A few months later Charlotte had her first operation – keyhole surgery through her groin up into her heart.
The operation was deemed a success, however four months post-surgery, Charlotte was in a dance rehearsal, celebrating being four months palpitations-free and then it happened again: “My heart started palpitating, I sank to the floor and cried. I got back in touch with the hospital and went for a check-up.” She went in for a second procedure in 2013, and hasn’t experienced a single palpitation since.
Now Charlotte is a fully qualified personal trainer and fitness instructor in central London. She also competes in bodybuilding competitions.

Speaking about her experience, Charlotte said: “The journey from not being allowed to have baths, to sponsored pro athlete has been amazing and something I could only have ever dreamed about before. I never take a single opportunity for granted knowing that before 2013 this life I'm living just wasn't going to be possible.”

We’re @CurzonSoho in London, premiering Transition: Your Journey. Our film about the challenges young heart patients face when they move from paediatric to adult care. Today the Meet @ Teen Heart members that helped make it will get their first chance to see the finished product.

Heart hero, Theo, has been through more than most children his age, but that hasn’t stopped him smiling!
In May 2017, Theo was born with a number of heart defects. He had a hole in the top of his heart (ASD), a hole in the bottom of his heart (VSD) and an interrupted aortic arch.
At just 12 days old, Theo underwent a 10 hour procedure, which involved repairing the holes and reconstructing the aortic arch with donor tissue.
Now with Theo back at home again, proud dad, Steven, said: “It is only thanks to the quick actions of the amazing doctors and nurses on both the cardiac ward and intensive care that Theo has survived.”
