Story

Thanks for taking the time to visit our Green Hearts fundraising page.

Funds raised will enable us to expand our campaign so that we can continue to raise awareness and understanding of heart health risks (including that of vascular dementia) to our community and to promote early detection; ultimately saving more Irish lives.

Your support will also help us gather data through our blood pressure screenings to inform future research on this vital issue for the Irish community in Britain. 

Green Hearts is a community-driven initiative led by the national charity 'Irish in Britain' to help improve the heart health of the Irish community.

With so many Irish people emigrating here in the 1950s and 1960s, we have an aging population and with that comes its own unique health challenges. At the moment, data tells us that the Irish have higher than average cardio-related deaths. Poor heart health is also a risk factor in vascular dementia and may explain the high levels within the Irish population.

Your help and support is vital to the continued success of the campaign and it will enable us to make a significant positive impact on the health of the Irish in Britain, both now and for generations to come.

Go raibh míle maith agat,

The Green Hearts Team.
