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.

North Wales Dragons

The North Wales Dragons were formed in 2009 as a way to raise funds and awareness for various charities. Having raised £2000 for charity in our first year, they decided to hold another event the year after, since then their main fundraising day has become an annual event.
Throughout the rest of the year they play many like-minded football teams, helping them raise money for charities.
Boots for Africa, Help for Heroes, Neves Charities, Clic Sargent and Cancer UK’s ‘Join the Fight Against Breast Cancer are all charities that have benefited from our involvement in fund raising which has seen them generate approximately £20,000.00 of money for good causes to date.
Always wishing to build walls higher with each passing year, they try and make each of their fund raising days bigger, in 2013/14 they involved even more teams with the aim of raising money for more charities.
With the continuing success of the charity football team, in 2012 they became a not for profit social enterprise. Subsequently forming the ‘Plus’ Project. The project is aimed at demonstrating how business and good causes can work together for the mutual benefit of both parties.
Although based in the Llandudno Junction area, the team travel throughout Wales and across borders to other countries having many tales however, what goes on on tour, stays on tour!
