February 2019 is all about heart - it's National Heart Awareness month, it's home to Valentine's Day AND the wonderful British Heart Foundation (BHF) is our fantastic Charity Car Partner of the Month!

We describe ourselves (because the Charity Car team is known for its humble nature!) as the big-hearted car donation scheme, and we were thrilled with the opportunity to put the British Heart Foundation at the fore for this special month.

Children CPR Training

Now we might make lots of silly links to hearts and love, but in reality we are truly passionate about enabling people to donate their old cars to causes close to their heart, and the British Heart Foundation's work is incredibly important. In fact, we couldn't believe the stats...

Seven million people in the UK live with heart and circulatory diseases, and these diseases are responsible for more than quarter of all deaths. That's over 150,000 deaths each year - an average of 420 people every single day.

But we're not writing this to scare or depress you... the BHF has invested in pioneering research for over half a century, and in that time the annual number of deaths from heart and circulatory diseases in the UK has fallen by more than half! So, even though there's a lot more work to do, it's clear to see, the work BHF does is life changing.

Blood Pressure Check

The breakthroughs the charity has made, from transplants to miniscule devices to correct heartbeats, shows the kind of cures and treatments that can come and will save lives in the future. And with £100 million being put into research projects every year, the BHF's mission to win the fight against cardiovascular disease gets closer and closer. Your old car donation would be a significant help towards that mammoth total being raised every year to sustain BHF's ground-breaking research.

If you don't have an old car to donate, do help spread the word with people that might, and of course you can do lots of other things to help raise money for BHF and to mark National Heart Month... people are wearing red, selling hand-made Valentine's cards, taking part in BHF's Dechox (a sponsored give-up chocolate for February), and numerous other activities. Joining BHF's fight for every heartbeat in the UK is a special feeling, and the charity is clear - every pound raised and item donated will help make a difference to people's lives.

The BHF Shop Workers

Between now and 2020 BHF will fund more than half a billion pounds of cardiovascular research to save lives. An old car donation can help BHF beat heartbreak forever. This February would be a great time to start to your support.
