We are holding a 'Jump Off' on 30th March 2017 when classes will have a variety of skipping challenges that will test the pupils endurance. Your sponsorship will not only motivate them but help the school and the British Heart Foundation and we'd be so grateful for your support.
The BHF has helped halve the number of people dying from heart and circulatory disease in the UK but sadly every day hundreds of people lose their lives. It's only thanks to support from people like us that the BHF can create new treatments and discover new cures. £25 could pay for an hour of research by an early career scientist, but every pound helps so please give what you can to help us hit our target. Thanks!
