Prize Draw 2017

Please help us raise £25,000 for SCAD research!

The British Heart Foundation funding for the SCAD research project has come to an end. It was gaining real momentum, raising awareness among cardiologists and providing information to specialists throughout the country. Without more funding, the future of the project is at risk.

Beat SCAD has already donated £25,000 to the Leicester SCAD research project, thanks to some fantastic and creative fundraising. We now need to raise another £25,000 for this research to continue so we need YOU and we need YOUR support… now and for the foreseeable future.

SCAD patients who have attended a Research Day at Leicester know how valuable it is, not just to gain information and reassurance from two of the leading specialists in this country, but also because these test results and individual case studies contribute to the overall research data. Around 120 patients have attended so far, but more than 500 people registered, are now waiting.

What you can do to help

Please help us ensure that everyone who is registered will see the research team by selling Prize Draw Tickets. There is a special gift awaiting the person who sells the most tickets! For tickets please click here to email us with your name and address and how many books of tickets you require (each book includes five tickets). Tickets cost £1 each.

We have some amazing prizes on offer, including seven nights’ holiday accommodation in the Algarve, three nights in a beautiful cottage in Burnham Market in Norfolk, a stunning sterling silver heart pendant – and more! The Draw will take place on 28 November 2017, closing date is 20 November. See all the prizes, along with the terms and conditions below.

Thank you for participating – and GOOD LUCK!
