Norfolk Heart Trust

Norfolk Heart Trust Banner
The Norfolk Heart Trust exists to help the thousands of people in Norfolk who suffer with heart disease every year, improving their chances of survival and their quality of life.

They work hard to raise money so that the Norfolk & Norwich University Hospital can provide state of the art cardiac investigation and monitoring equipment not available from NHS sources. The Norfolk Heart Trust also works to fund research into heart disease, as well as helping with the training of doctors, nurses, technicians, and other health care professionals involved in the treatment of heart disease in Norfolk.

“The Norfolk Heart Trust is a life saver!”

Dr Tim Gilbert, Consultant Cardiologist in the NNUH’s Cardiology Department
What they achieve

If you, a member of your family or a friend have been treated for heart disease at the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital, there is a good chance that the equipment has been donated by the Norfolk Heart Trust.

The Norfolk Heart Trust has already helped people across Norfolk by raising funds for essential equipment. Fundraising initiatives such as their “Balloons for Hearts” campaign generated the £1 million needed for specialist X-ray equipment that made Coronary Balloon Angioplasty possible at the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital’s Cardiology Department. Their “Sparks for Hearts” campaign allowed them to offer Cardiac Electrical services too. 4 out of 5 heart scanners and several ECG machines at the NNUH are the result of their fundraising work.

How you can help

The Norfolk Heart Trust has achieved so much, but we want to do more, and we’ve only been able to achieve what we have through the efforts of kind donors and volunteer fundraisers. People like you. There are all sorts of ways to raise money for and awareness of the Norfolk Heart Trust, and many of them are a great deal of fun!

The easiest way to help is to simply donate online via the form on this page or you can send a cheque made payable to Norfolk Heart Trust sent to Norfolk Community Foundation, St. James Mill, Whitefriars, Norwich, NR3 1TN. Any sum, large or small, is enormously appreciated.

You might want to set a personal challenge for yourself by taking part in a sponsored walk, run or cycle ride, or organise a community event in the form of a bake sale, coffee morning or car boot sale. Norfolk Heart Trust’s website has plenty of tips, resources and ideas to get you started, including a downloadable sponsorship form that you can use to get your friends, family and work colleagues on board. Do let us know about your fundraising event, so that we can help.

Whatever your fundraising event is, all we ask if that you ensure that it is safe and within the charity law. On any literature, please make sure that you state that you are fundraising on Norfolk Heart Trust’s behalf, but that you do not represent the charity. Please include Norfolk Community Foundation and our registered charity number (1110817) on any posters and advertisements that invite people to participate or help.

Reclaim Gift Aid

Gift Aid It!If you are a UK taxpayer, add 25% more to your donation at no cost to you. A Gift Aid declaration allows Norfolk Community Foundation to claim tax back on eligible donations. It means that for every £1 you donate to Norfolk Community Foundation we can claim back 25p, at no extra cost to you.

By ticking the “Yes” box, I agree I would like Norfolk Community Foundation to reclaim the tax on all qualifying donations I have made, as well as any future donations, until I notify them otherwise. I understand that if I pay less Income Tax and/or Capital Gains Tax than the amount of Gift Aid claimed on all my donations in that tax year I may be asked to pay any difference. I understand that Norfolk Community Foundation will reclaim 25p of tax on every £1 that I give.

What is Gift Aid?

Gift Aid does not cost you a penny more, but can add an additional 25p to every £1 you donate. When Norfolk Community Foundation receives a donation from a UK taxpayer, we’re entitled to claim an amount of tax (calculated at the basic rate of income tax in that year) paid on that donation. Once you have given your permission for us to do this on your behalf, there is no need for you to do anything else.

All that is required is that you must be a taxpayer and that would have paid or will pay sufficient Income and/or Capital Gains Tax to cover all the Gift Aid claimed on all your donations in that tax year. Please note that it is your responsibility to pay any difference.

The amount of tax we claim will be 25% of the total value of your donations in that tax year. Furthermore, if you are a higher taxpayer, you are also entitled to claim the difference between the basic rate which we will claim and the amount of tax you have actually paid. For further details on how you can do this, please contact your tax office. If your tax situation changes and your gifts will no longer be eligible for the Gift Aid scheme please contact us and we will amend your record accordingly.
