I am writing to thank all those in our community who helped to make the British Heart Foundation (BHF) Help a Heart Week 2006 a success.

So many people have supported us by digging deep and donating to our biggest ever UK-wide collection, buying a heart ribbon from their local BHF Shop, joining a BHF lifecycle or raising funds their own way, that the Charity is well on its way to raising its target of £1.3 million.

To those people who gave their time for free - by volunteering to distribute and gather in collection envelopes or helping out with events and other fundraising activities - we are also extremely thankful. The money our community has raised during Help a Heart Week in June will help the BHF continue its life-saving research. With your ongoing support, we are continuing to save and improve the lives of the millions of men, women and children affected by heart disease. For that, we are very grateful.

Terry Kinsman

British Heart Foundation Regional Director for Essex
