British Heart Foundation door to door collections

THE British Heart Foundation (BHF) Northern Ireland will be carrying out door to door fundraising in the Banbridge and Dromore areas between May 13-19.

For over 50 years the Foundation has pioneered research that’s transformed the lives of people living with heart and circulatory conditions. Their work has been central to the discoveries of vital treatments that are changing the fight against heart disease.

Marjory Burns, Director, BHF Northern Ireland says: “We can’t do our vital work without our loyal supporters and we would like to encourage anyone that can to sign up and join the fight.

“There have been some concerns raised over fundraisers calling at doors in areas of Northern Ireland. Our legitimate fundraisers will always have an identification badge and they will never ask for cash. They will invite you to sign up for a direct debit and take only the kind of information that appears openly on your cheques – the account number and sort code”.

If you are worried at all, the PSNI recommends you call Quick Check on 0800 013 2290. You can also call BHF Northern Ireland’s supporter services team during office hours on 0300 330 3322 or email supporterservices@bhf.org.uk
