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.


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
