Heartfelt thanks and a happy 70th birthday to David Banks

On Sunday 4th December 2016 Heartbeat member, David Banks, completed to the Lancaster half marathon to celebrate his 70th birthday. Well done David!

Here’s his message to you.

“Hi guys,

Well I completed the Lancaster 1/2 marathon along the banks of the Lune yesterday morning in 2hrs 11 minutes and 24 seconds

Following my two Cardiac procedures in 2013 I was contacted by a Cardiac nurse from the local charity Heartbeat. They helped me with advice with medication, enlisted me on the six week rehabilitation course in the gym and most of all gave me back my confidence.

Dave Banks 2

I am an ex-submariner from the Royal Navy and keen keep fitter who has completed 10 marathons so imagine; after my collapse I felt my whole world had fallen apart.

I have kept attending the gym classes at the fantastic rehabilitation centre at Deepdale Stadium and built up my fitness which helped me run the 13.1 mile race yesterday.

I ran it for Heartbeat and would be grateful for any donations.

Thanks

David Banks”

Runners turn out for Heartbeat

Close to 300 runners of all ages took part in the Heartbeat 2k and 1k fun runs at Avenham Park, Preston on Sunday 25th September 2016. This is our 4th annual fun run and this year was the biggest so far, raising over £1000 for the charity.

The team at EverybodyFit led the warm up before Heartbeat Fundraising Officer Mark started the race at 1pm. Runners then took on the course with our mascot, Cardiac Carl clapping and cheering them on at the finish.

A special mention also needs to go to the patients from the amputee clinic at Watling Street Road and to Gina Briggs who completed both 2k & 1k routes after running both 10k & 5k routes at the Run Preston event that morning. We can’t thank everyone individually but all those who took part helped to create a fantastic day! We can’t wait for next year!

You can check out the highlights from the event below.

Lauren’s Total Warrior Challenge in aid of local Heart Charity!

Press Release

Date: 5th July 2016

Lauren Hoggs 8

Lauren Hogg from Fulwood in Preston recently took part in the one of the toughest challenges on the fundraising calendar in aid of local heart charity Heartbeat.
Lauren took part in ‘Total Warrior’ Leeds in June and decided to give something back to the charity that supported her Grandpa Grant Williams over the years by raising sponsorship for Heartbeat.
Lauren said, “The first obstacle was a 1km run, which you had to run to begin with. This was up and down a rather steep hill and took its toll on me. I honestly thought if this was the first obstacle it was only going to get worse. Which it did mud wise.

For those who know me I don’t do mud or dirt, so to be thrown in at the deep end (literally) in thigh high thick mud was probably my worst nigtmare! After this there was a lot of freezing water, more mud and challenging obstacles. I knew that I had to keep going though, not only to get back to the car but also to complete this challenge to show all the people who believed in me and supported me both mentally and physically, by donating to Heartbeat, that I could do this and would do this. After all the obstacles, cuts and bruises and the thought of having a shower, I completed the course in 2 hours and 34 minutes.

I choose to raise money for Heartbeat after they supported my Grandpa for 17 years. In May 1998, Grant Williams suffered a heart attack and in that August he underwent 6 heart bypasses in one hit. After this, he went to Heartbeat for rehabilitation, to meet people who had gone through the same thing and eventually using the gym equipment to monitor his progress. We sadly lost him last July, so as a thankyou for all their help, I wanted to raise some money for Heartbeat so they can continue to help those in the future, as this charity is very close to our family’s heart.
I am hoping to have a total of almost £500 by the end which is more than triple what I initially set out to achieve, so fingers crossed.’

Lisa Riding Heartbeat fundraiser said, “I would like to thank Lauren for taking part in this gruelling challenge in aid of Heartbeat and we would like to wish her well in reaching her fundraising target. There is still time to sponsor Lauren visit her justgiving page www.justgiving.com/fundraising/LAUREN-HOGG2.

Sponsored events are extremely important to Heartbeat as the money collected will go towards the on-going work provided to local people that require heart rehabilitation by providing an exercise-based Cardiac Rehabilitation programme, fully supervised by trained instructors, to those recovering from heart attack, surgery or stroke and supports those at risk of developing these conditions.

We also provide testing and monitoring services such as 24 hour blood pressure and ECG reports in advance of joining the programme.

The programme is a controlled mix of physical exercise, relaxation, education, support and advice-helping each individual to reach their personal goal and work towards a heart healthy brighter future.

Each week we support over 800 local people at our sessions in Preston and surrounding areas which currently cost over £900k per year, all of which needs to come from voluntary donations!

If you are looking to take up a challenge in aid of your local heart charity please get in contact with Lisa or Mark in fundraising on 01772 717147 or email lisa.riding@heartbeat-nwcc.org.uk’
