Welsh Hearts hosts regular screening days where anyone aged 16-40 can come along and have a simple, painless ECG scan to detect undiagnosed heart problems. You can find out more and book a slot by visiting: http://welshhearts.org/our-work/heartscreeningwales/

Make a Heart Sign for Heart Awareness Month

Did you know February is Heart Awareness Month?

So we’re asking you to make the iconic heart sign, take a photo and share it with us on social media to raise awareness for heart health in Wales. If you want to go the extra mile, you can text ‘WHHH33 £2’ to 70070 to donate £2 and help us place Defibrillators in communities throughout Wales. Don’t forget to tag your friends and nominate them to do the same.

We also want to encourage people to go out and find where their nearest Defibrillator is in their community. Why not find yours, take a selfie with it and post it to social media with the hashtag #Defibuary.

Even Anton DuBeke and Erin Boag got involved when they came to Cardiff as part of their From Broadway to Hollywood tour!

Welsh Hearts Launches Light Up a Heart Christmas Appeal

Christmas is a time when people are thinking of happy times shared with their loved ones. To help celebrate, honour and remember the lives of loved ones no longer with us, we have created our Light up a Heart Christmas Appeal. You can make a donation online which will help Welsh Hearts continue with their work in Wales.

Since 2013, Welsh Hearts has played a leading role in improving Heart Health in Wales. It is our mission to continue to provide public-access defibrillators throughout Wales, to continue to grow the army of individuals who are fully trained in CPR and defibrillator usage, and to lead the campaign for better awareness of cardiovascular health in Wales through events such as our heart screening sessions.
Your donation will not only celebrate your loved one’s life but will help us fight Wales’ biggest killer, heart disease. Every single penny we raise stays in Wales and will contribute towards providing life saving equipment or skills into communities and schools across Wales.
We know anniversaries and special occasions like Christmas are always emotional times, especially if you’ve lost someone you love. Our Light Up a Heart Christmas Appeal will give you a chance to remember a loved one in a special way by lighting up a heart in their honour.
Your gift will not only celebrate a loved ones’ life but will help us place more defibrillators in communities throughout Wales, teach free CPR, buy training equipment for our volunteer medics and hold many heart screening sessions which will detect early heart abnormalities in young people.

Aled Jones is Coming to Town!

Welsh Hearts are extremely excited to announce Aled Jones as their star guest for hugely popular Christmas concert ‘Christmas on Broadway’ taking place at City Hall, Cardiff on Friday 15th December 2017.

Aled needs no introduction. A Welsh singer, Christian and TV personality who rose to fame as a young boy for singing ‘Walking in the Air’, the beautiful song from Channel 4’s animated film ‘The Snowman’. The song reached No. 5 in the UK charts and continues to be one of the most iconic Christmas songs of all times!

Since he shot to stardom, Aled’s career has gone from strength to strength.  In 2003, Aled re-launched his voice as an adult, when he released his first adult album, ‘Aled’. Although he had a previous album before this release, ‘From The Heart’, Aled considered ‘Aled’ as his first proper adult album.
In April 2016, Aled released ‘One Voice’, a concept album that saw Aled duet with his younger self. The album reached number one in the Classical Chart where he dominated the top spot for fourteen weeks and reached number three in the Official UK Charts.

Following the success of ‘One Voice’, Aled launched the follow up album ‘One Voice At Christmas’ in November 2016 with a spectacular press launch 18,000ft in the air where he performed the new ‘Walking In The Air’ – which is now the highest Christmas concert flying over the UK.


Sharon Owen, Charity Director said. “We couldn’t be more excited to have Aled on board for our Christmas Concert. Attracting big names such as Aled, is a huge step forward for the Charity. We have a really small team and work extremely hard on producing enjoyable family friendly events throughout the year”

 “Without these events, we simply would not be able to continue the work that we do. We invite all Aled fans and charity supporters to come and see our fabulous Christmas show at City Hall, we promise it to be everything you could want from a festive concert and more! 

Featuring all the songs from all your favorite musicals! This is a must-see magical Christmas Concert that is guaranteed to raise the roof, warm the hearts and get the audience in the mood for a fabulous, fun and maybe even a White Christmas!


Ticket prices start at just £18.50 and can be bought through the Welsh Hearts website


Or by contacting the fundraising office on 02922 40 26 70.


All proceeds from this event will go towards Welsh Heart’s ‘Keep Wales Ticking appeal’. The primary aim of this appeal is to provide even more defibrillators into Schools & Communities across Wales.
