Cake Break

The Cake Break was an excellent collaboration between the Imperial BHF CRE and the BHF themselves.

In the morning we welcomed staff and students from across the Hammersmith campus with the opportunity to win a tempting jar of chocolates and to get some fetching BHF merch. From a humble stand, £125 was raised.

In the afternoon, speakers from both the BHF and Imperial spoke to a budding audience on the importance and excitement of fundraising, inspiring a new generation of volunteers, outreach speakers and fundraisers.

The day was finished off with a much-desired Cake Break, where networking sprouted, and fundraising ideas were shared.

Mis(s)diagnosed Symposium

Well done to our BHF DTP students Mascha Vinokurova, Zuzanna Jablonska, Amalia Sintou, and Anies- Makhdomi-Sohi on organising the inaugural BHF student symposium “Mis(s)diagnosed - why sex matters in cardiovascular diseases". The symposium was a thought-provoking afternoon with various guest speakers discussing the sex differences in cardiovascular disease.

The Imperial BHF Fundraising Team featured during the breaks where attendees could purchase their very own Mis(s)diagnosed badges, raising £58.

BHF 60th Anniversary

Runners for 60k

600 Miles in 60 Days for the 60 Years of the BHF

For the BHF’s 60th Anniversary, the fundraising team went big! As we stretched our legs, dusted off our running shoes and oiled our bike chains at the end of the UK’s final lockdown, staff, students and friends of the Imperial BHF CRE formed teams and competed against each other to walk, run and cycle 600 miles in 60 days and raise £75 for the BHF. With many teams completely thrashing those goals, an incredible total of £2400 was raised.

600 Miles in 60 Days for the 60 Years of the BHF

With the winning teams Vaso-Active accumulating 2893 miles and The Pacemakers raising over £900, it is safe to say that there is a competitive spirit amongst our BHF supporters.

BHF Friyay

Lockdown did not stop us from having fun and fundraising. A series of online classes were run to bring a bit of cheer to our Fridays. In the lead up to Christmas, our Friday nights were active with Zumba, chilled with yoga and indulgent with baking, while there was also the chance to get a hold of some aromatic mulling spices. So, you can lock us up and throw away the key, but we still raised £405.

A beating success, with 212 raffle tickets sold and £511 raised, all in under two weeks. Everyone definitely gave a whole lot of heart this Valentine's Day!
