Swinging Sixties to inspire fundraisers

The British Heart Foundation is asking people to put on their party shoes, brush up their beehives and join its 50th birthday celebrations this month.

The nation’s heart charity which was founded in July 1961, is looking to Derbyshire residents to get involved and host a 1960s inspired party or celebratory event.

To help get people in the spirit the BHF has created a special party page full of retro music, food, fancy dress and fundraising ideas visit bhf.org.uk/party.

Sophie Jardine, Derbyshire fundraising and volunteer manager for the BHF, said: “We hope as many people as possible will help us celebrate this milestone with fun-filled fundraising.”
