Community groups Healthy Heart projects in Anglia that help local people look after their hearts can now apply for a regional grant up to £10,000, thanks to national charity Heart Research UK and the Subway® brand.
The Heart Research UK and Subway® Healthy Heart Grant is available for new and innovative projects that promote healthy hearts and reduce the risk of heart disease in the community.

The £10,000 has been raised locally in Subway® stores throughout Anglia. Previous grantees in the region have included Peterborough Environment City Trust and Southend United Community and Educational Trust.
Kate Bratt-Farrar, Chief Executive of Heart Research UK, said: “Through our partnership with Subway®, we hope to encourage people all across the country to make healthy choices and give them practical help to do so. This grant is available to ensure everyone can benefit from a healthier, happier and longer life.
“We’re looking for new and innovative projects that really have an impact, especially if they aim to improve the health of at risk or hard to reach communities. We’re really grateful to the many customers and staff at Subway® stores who have raised the money to make this possible.”
Colin Hughes, Subway’s Country Director for the UK & Ireland, said: “We are so proud of the generosity of our guests who donate to our charity partner Heart Research UK through our network of collection boxes, which are in every Subway store. This programme allows us to proudly offer this Healthy Heart Grant to Anglia.
“We know that these grants go a long way to help others in helping with their heart health. We’re delighted that our initiatives with Heart Research UK are recognised and give people opportunities to improve their heart health that they otherwise might not have had.”
