In response to the pandemic, Heart Research UK has adapted the criteria for their Healthy Heart grants.

They will accept applications for projects which can be delivered remotely or with social distancing measures in place.

This year they are also accepting applications for the funding of equipment only.

Kate Bratt-Farrar, Chief Executive of Heart Research UK, said, “Through our partnership with Subway®, we hope to encourage people all across the country to make healthier choices and give them practical help to do so.

 

 

“This grant is available to ensure everyone can benefit from a healthier, happier and longer life.

“We’re looking for new and innovative projects that really have an impact, especially if they aim to improve the health of at-risk or hard to reach communities.

She added, “We’re really grateful to the many customers and staff at Subway® stores who have raised the money to make this possible.”
