It's a shocking fact that heart and circulatory disease is the UK's biggest killer. Every day, 340 people have a heart attack. That's people in your community. Your next door neighbours. Your friends. Your family. Now we can all do something about it.
Being physically active is one of the best things you can do to keep your heart healthy in the long term. Therefore, Get Active – for a Healthier Happier Dartford proudly supports the British Heart Foundation's Heart Town Initiative.
The Council has teamed up with the British Heart Foundation (BHF) and together are fighting back with the exciting new scheme "Heart Towns". Heart Town involves the whole community coming together to support life-saving, pioneering work. This can include; participating in local projects which support the Heart Town ethos, accessing BHF's wide range of resources and programmes to support a healthy heart, raising awareness by adding a Zebrafish to the Hope Tank Aquarium, or by raising vital funds via a 'One Day' fundraising event.
