Brentford have announced a partnership with several leading heart charities to form the Heart of West London initiative.
The club hope to raise awareness about cardiac health, get people exercising to reduce risk of cardiac episodes, get young people screened for cardiac issues, raise money for treatment and research, and provide support for families affected by cardiac conditions.
Brentford and their community sports trust are working together with Royal Brompton and Harefield Hospitals Charity, Cardiac Risk in the Young, Resuscitation Council UK, Pablo London and A-K-A Day.
In a statement, the club said: “In the London Borough of Hounslow, there are around 21,000 people living with heart and circulatory diseases which causes 35 deaths each month.
“Cardiovascular disease is the leading cause of death globally and it does not discriminate.
