Blood Pressure UK would really like your support in reaching more people during Know your Numbers! Week. You can help us in the following ways:

At Work

  • Organise a Pressure Station: speak to your Occupational Health department about setting up a Pressure Station at your place of work
  • Spread the word: raise awareness by promoting Know your Numbers! on your intranet or website. We can supply statistics, pre-formatted text to upload and you can also include our fun interactive quiz or email it on to colleagues
  • Fundraise: hold a collection tin, nominate the Blood Pressure Association for pay-roll giving or hold or take part in a sponsored event to raise funds during the Week.

At Home

  • Organise a fundraising event in conjunction with Know your Numbers! Week
  • Put up posters in your local area, with details of nearest Pressure Stations
  • Let your contacts on Twitter/ Facebook know that you are going to have a free blood pressure check during Know your Numbers! Week and direct them to our website to encourage them to find their nearest venue
  • send a news release to your local media (the Press Office can provide you with all you need)
  • write to your MP (using the template letters available from our Press Office)
  • make a donation to help others receive free, potentially life-saving blood pressure checks
  • become a member of Blood Pressure UK and receive our quarterly magazine Positive Pressure plus a host of other benefits.
