Nuaire Team with BHF Charity Partner

British Heart Foundation

This year British Heart Foundations (BHF) was chosen through a company-wide vote as Nuaire’s charity of the year.

British Heart Foundation’s strategy is to Beat Heartbreak Forever. They are working towards a world free from the fear of heart and circulatory diseases. Since BHF founded, their research has helped to reduce deaths from heart and circulatory diseases by more than half. By 2030, they want to see advances across the spectrum of heart and circulatory disease; they want to prevent these conditions from developing and they want to see those with existing conditions to have better longer lives.

BHF is the biggest independent funder of medical research into heart and regulatory diseases and they fund £1.7 million into air pollution research. Pioneering research funded by the BHF has identified that hundreds of thousands of people in the UK living with heart and circulatory conditions may be at significant risk of suffering a coronary event and hospitalisation from exposure to high levels of pollution. Nuaire is working towards innovating technologies that deliver clean, filtered air into our homes, improving air quality to within safe levels recommended by the World Health Organisation.

Adam Fletcher Head of BHF Cymru said, “We are delighted that Nuaire has chosen British Heart Foundation as their Charity of the Year and look forward to working in partnership with them. Nuaire will play a vital role in helping BHF Cymru end the heartbreak caused by heart and circulatory diseases, including heart disease, stroke, vascular dementia and diabetes. It's thanks to generous fundraising efforts that we're able to make a difference to the 375,000 people living Wales with heart and circulatory disease, by funding more research to deliver the scientific breakthroughs we need.”

Nuaire is aiming to raise as much money as possible in 2019, with employees taking part in fundraising events throughout the year, from running marathons and dress down days to sponsored walks to bake-offs to meet our £10k target.
