Frederique Constant holds ladies lunch to raise awareness of heart disease in women and vital funds in the fight for every heartbeat
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 after their 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.
