Huge congratulations to everyone who took part in the 50 mile Glastonbury Bike Ride, and also huge thank you to our dedicated volunteers and riders who made this event possible.

 

Fundraising funds help research into saving lives. In 1961 the number of children born with a heart defect who survived to their first birthday was around only 20 per cent. Today that figure is 80 per cent, thanks to procedures such as valve replacement that help them lead improved lives. Heart disease is still the UK's single biggest killer. Surgery techniques can still be improved. And there are exciting developments in genetics and stem cell technology .The funds raised will help us continue funding research to ensure hearts keep beating.
