The Pumping Marvellous Foundation, the UK’s heart failure charity run by patients for patients. We have lost a lot of our traditional funding streams at a time of the year when people are helping us by fundraising to keep our efforts going. Marathons, 10k’s, Cycling Events, they’ve all been put on hold.
We need your help to save the UK’s Charities. Join the nation and take on the 2.6 challenge by fundraising in our charity’s name.
FROM 2.6 TO 26. IT’S YOUR CHOICE. YOUR CHALLENGE. ALTERNATIVELY JUST DONATE £2.60 OR £26, OR ANYTHING INBETWEEN
We would obviously like you to choose the Pumping Marvellous Foundation to help us continue supporting the 1,000,000 people living with heart failure in the UK. We are a small charity compared to some of the more household names but we absolutely “punch above our weight” when it comes to delivering help to people living with heart failure in the UK.
We have managed to keep going and continue our work supporting and helping people live better with heart failure.
We have twisted our charity proposition and innovated over the past 5-6 weeks to working from home without having to furlough any team members which has enabled us to work normally at optimum capacity. We are still sending 1000’s of pieces of patient information out to those HFSN teams still requesting the information. Our webinars have been a huge success where we are now confidently streaming across 7 channels from next week and reaching 10,000’s of people. However we can’t do this forever…
We are still
- Delivering patient information to heart failure nursing teams across the UK who then give out the valuable information to patients and their families. We have sent 1000’s out since lockdown in the UK.
- Delivering professional webinars every day of the week to our patient populations on subjects that will improve their quality of life, from mild exercise, chair based Yoga to food and crafting webinars – come and have a look at them
- Ensuring the patient voice is incorporated in decision making around heart failure care across the UK during the COVID19 pandemic where heart failure services are incredibly stretched as well as teams being redeployed to the frontline of the COVID19 crisis.
- Supporting people with heart failure through a large online communities where we help people with questions around day to day living with heart failure
These comments describe our charity so well. We are driven to helping patients live better with heart failure. We listen to people and are led by the needs of people living with heart failure, this is why we deliver what we say we are going to deliver.
A no better reason to raise funds for the Pumping Marvellous Foundation by completing the 2.6 challenge raising funds.
Please could you kindly send the attached list of booklets. My patients and colleagues are really impressed with them. Your organisation is excellent and so user friendly.
My Dad has been diagnosed with heart failure and we’ve been given your Big Pocket Guide to Heart Failure (which is excellent!).
I am newly diagnosed with heart failure (AF and damage) and was given a booklet from Pumping Marvellous in hospital, where I am currently and awaiting discharge in two days. I am really lifted by the positivity of your organisation and HOPE. Fantastic work and thank you so much
As a family, we had little knowledge of heart failure and felt this was the case generally. I think it is brilliant that you are trying to make people more aware of this debilitating condition which affects young and old alike.
The interview went amazingly well. I’m sure it was all the knowledge I gained from your website, so I can only imagine how patients feel when they discover your organisation. I often now recommend it, due to the patient centre approach with reference to the real people managing their own condition. I can’t thank you enough. I am more fulfilled as a nurse and looking forward to an exciting professional future.
I’m a cardiology nurse in acute area and this morning I’m going to interview for a heart failure nurse specialist role within my trust. I’ve been doing weeks and weeks of research and prep. I’ve come back to your website time and time again. Your team is an inspiration and what an amazing resource of knowledge, not only for the patients but for nurses too.
I’ve just logged on to your site for the first time and it’s really wonderful! Thank you for supplying the resources detailed in the attached request form. They sound absolutely amazing and will be of immense help for our patients.
Hi – have come across your amazing website and would love to get some leaflets for our patients – can I order some?
These information booklets are an invaluable source of information for my heart failure patients, enabling me to educate, instil confidence and promote self-management.
I am running for a great charity which helps people with heart failure. As a heart failure specialist nurse I have had the benefit of seeing the charity in action, helping many people through hard times.
