The Hertfordshire Business Awards 2012 Chosen Charity is the British Heart Foundation

Heart disease is the UK’s biggest killer. The chances are it has already affected you, your family, or your friends. Far too many people die prematurely, and for those who survive, life can be frightening and hard.As the nation’s heart charity, the British Heart Foundation is totally committed to creating a world where people no longer die prematurely from heart disease. We’re doing this through our pioneering research, patient care, campaigning for change and by providing vital information that helps people keep their own hearts healthy. But we urgently need your support – we rely on your donations of time and money to continue our life-saving work. Because together we can beat heart disease. 

The charity raffle and casino raised a grand total of £2,848.37. Archant would like to thank Hotel Chocolat, Fin Divers, Sopwell House, Champneys St Albans, Stevenage Football Club and Szpak Photography for kindly donating raffle prizes. At the end of the evening Carol Chalkley won the most chips at the fun casino and won a BMW for the weekend courtesy of Specialist Cars in Stevenage.
