Today 75 women gathered at Mosimann’s, London, as part of the Frédérique Constant ladies lunch in aid of the BHF.
The aim of the lunch was to raise awareness of women and children’s heart health and to highlight the brands global partnership with the World Heart Federation (WHF).
The WHF is a united community of more than 200 member organisations fighting against cardiovascular disease (CVD). Frederique Constant has been involved in heart related charities since 2009, and now working with the WHF to support heart charities around the world.
Yesterday’s lunch brought Frederique Constant and BHF, a member of the WHF, together to continue the fight for every heartbeat here in the UK.
Aletta Stas, COO and Founder of Frédérique Constant hosted the lunch and was joined by Spanish model, actress, Inès Sastre and British model and presenter, Jade Parfitt.
This year one hundred watches will be produced and donated to the World Heart Federation members organisations to support their actions aimed at preventing this diseases in women and children around the world. The partnership is a joint commitment to raise global awareness especially in the most vulnerable countries.
Raising money to help the nation’s heart charity fight back against coronary heart disease - the UK’s single biggest killer - the event featured a live and silent auction with items including a Frédérique Constant watch, Aruna Seth shoes and an Urban Retreat @ Harrods Spa experience.
Aletta Stas, commented: “We’re delighted to have held this lunch in aid of the BHF today. It is such a worthwhile cause as it is so vital that women protect and look aftertheir hearts.
“Coronary heart disease is the single biggest killer of women in the UK. It kills three times more women than breast cancer. If we’ve inspired just a handful of women to start thinking and talking openly about their heart health today I’ll be thrilled.”
The money raised from this event will help fund essential research which could create a better future for so many - from babies born with heart defects, to the millions of adults affected by heart disease.
Currently there are around 900,000 women in the UK alone living with coronary heart disease. The BHF has recently launched a new Women’s Room which contains practical advice on living with a heart condition and offers women the chance to support each other and share experiences with other women in similar situations.
To further support the ‘Hearts of Children’ campaign a Ladies World Heart Federation’ limited edition collection has been produced, consisting of four unique models.
