The British Heart Foundation
Scottish Hockey is delighted to team up with the British Heart Foundation and support the fight against heart and circulatory diseases. Through the Club Pledge initiative, which hockey clubs across Scotland have signed up to support, the hockey family can come together to raise funds and support the British Heart Foundations’ life-saving work.
Hockey is the fun, friendly and exciting sport for life so let’s use hockey’s platform to help raise awareness and improve early diagnosis and prevention of heart disease. We want to help beat heartbreak for Scotland by helping fund life-saving research to find better ways of diagnosing, treating and ultimately curing heart and circulatory diseases.
Let’s do this together. Join our team and let’s beat heartbreak forever.
Want to fundraise for the British Heart Foundation?
Clubs can choose to fundraise for the BHF by using Scottish Hockey’s fundraising page. Many clubs already have charity partners, but all clubs can choose to support Scottish Hockey’s charity partners through Club Pledge. Any funds raised will go to the charity directly, and will not pass through Scottish Hockey. All clubs need to do to start fundraising is click here and set up a fundraising page.
You can also check out the British Heart Foundation’s A-Z of fundraising ideas for more inspiration.
BHF has some free places available for the Glasgow Kiltwalk which takes place on Sunday 26th September. If you want to get involved, contact Laura Stockwell.
Donations to our retail shops
Our fabulous retail shops are always in need of stock that they can sell to raise money for our lifesaving research. Did you know, on average, every bag of donated stock has a value of £13! We can facilitate stock collections from your clubs or work with your members to promote our new freepost donation service.
Get in touch with Laura Stockwell for more information.
Be a club of lifesavers
Only 1 in 10 people survive an out of hospital cardiac arrest in Scotland. It can happen to anyone, at any time.
Knowing CPR could make all the difference.
At The BHF we’re on a mission to triple survival rates of cardiac arrests, and we’re creating a nation of lifesavers – getting more people trained up in CPR.
We want to train as many Scottish Hockey members in CPR as possible. To launch our partnership, we are organising a virtual CPR session on Wednesday 25th August 2021 – sign up here.
Please contact Laura Stockwell if you are interested in organising a CPR session for your club.
Does your club have defibrillators on site? If not, then BHF could work with you to arrange the purchase of defibrillators and training for your club. Not only is this of benefit to your staff and members, but also the local communities surrounding the clubs. Contact Laura Stockwell for more information.
Supporting your members’ wellbeing
We have lots of health and wellbeing resources for your members – from healthy food recipes, hints & tips on how to reduce your stress levels, or trustworthy information on specific heart and circulatory conditions.
Contact Laura Stockwell for more information on how we can create a bespoke wellbeing package for your club.
Free access to online learning course for all Scottish Hockey Members
All Scottish Hockey members have free access to our BHF Future Learn 3-week on demand online training course, “It Starts with your Heart”.
This course will help you learn more about what heart & circulatory diseases are, how they affect your body and how our pioneering research is taking us closer to a world without them.
Head to the Future Learn website to get started.
If you or your club would like some support or guidance with supporting the British Heart Foundation, contact Laura Stockwell
