Sian’s Mighty Ironman Challenge.. “She smashed it!”

Well done Sian!

Amazing! Such a fantastic inspiration! We’re all so proud of you!

On Sunday, 15th July, our fabulous team mate Sian took on one of the toughest challenges known to man (and woman) all in aid of Heartbeat!

Part 1:   2.4-mile swim (2 laps) of Pennington Flash

Part 2:   Cycle 112 miles

Part 3:   Run 26.22-miles

Why did Sian do this….

Sian says… “A few reasons, mainly it’s Heartbeat NWCC’s 40th Birthday, this charity I work for is a small charity in Preston that offers cardiac prevention and rehabilitation to the North West.

We all know someone who has been affected by heart disease (STROKE, heart attack, angina, heart failure and congenital heart disease) and this charity helps over 800 people every single week. Heartbeat NWCC is entirely self-funded and relies on generous donations, I am hoping to raise a good amount of money for them, if you could donate anything please visit my JustGiving page https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/sian-percival-edwards2

Secondly, because of the challenge and to me this is the biggest one out there.”

 

We are all so proud of our Sian for all her dedication.  If you would like to sponsor Sian and support her in this massive challenge, please click here https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/sian-percival-edwards2

Thank you

Wishing a Happy Retirement to Dr Parry

Dr Richard Parry will be retiring at the end of March after 40 years with Heartbeat.

Charity Fundraising Ball in aid of Heartbeat

On 18th November a sumptuous dinner organised as a tribute to legendary poultry farmer the late Reg Johnson, the man who got the country’s top chefs to prefix their duck and chicken dishes with the word Goosnargh to put the village on the culinary map, turned out to be a real menu pleaser not just for its 320 guests but also, his two favourite charities.

The event, held at Blackburn Rovers’ Ewood Park ground last November, raised £20,000 for the Reg Johnson Foundation, which has now been equally divided between Rosemere Cancer Foundation and cardiac rehabilitation charity Heartbeat, which is based at Preston North End’s Deepdale ground.

Reg’s daughter Kara Johnson and family friend Norma Scott met with Rosemere’s Louise Grant and Heartbeat’s Louise Bache at Deepdale to present each with their share.

Kara and Norma were also the dinner’s organisers, helped by another of Reg’s close friends, Northcote’s Michelin-starred chef Nigel Haworth.

On behalf of Heartbeat Lisa Riding the senior fundraising officer said – “I would also like to thank Norma, Kara and all those that supported the Reg Johnson Foundation at the event which raised this amazing amount for two local charities. Heartbeat is the North West Cardiac Rehabilitation Centre based within Preston North End with outreach sites over Preston, Blackpool and Chorley”

2018 is extremely significant for Heartbeat as it celebrates 40 years serving the local community. The money raised from this event will go towards the much-needed funds which enables Heartbeat to provide rehabilitation classes to over 900 people per week which currently costs over 1 million pounds per year. Visit www.heartbeat-nwcc.org.uk to find out more about Heartbeat and its work in the local community.

The Reg Johnson Foundation was set up in Reg’s memory following his death two years ago.

Sporting events at Leyland Leisure Centre raises funds for Heartbeat

Sporting communities in Leyland have raised almost £2,000 for Heartbeat. Families took part in a one-mile fun run around the squash courts at Leyland Leisure Centre, with a total of £1,750 gained through sponsorship.

Organiser John Gibson said: “Heart disease is the UK’s biggest killer, with one in four people in Lancashire affected. Encouraging children with their parents to take part in sport has numerous health benefits and is a great way to improve the heart health of our future generations.

“Heartbeat has to raise a million pounds a year to ensure it keeps up the great work.

“I want to thanks everybody who made donations, especially Dave Culshaw from UK Car Line Ltd who gave £500; Erin Hawthorne from Arnold Clark Automobiles Ltd, who donated £250 and Jon Nelson from M2M Intelligence Ltd who gave £250.

“I also want to say a big to Costa Coffee for sponsoring the event for the third year, Leyland Leisure Centre for allowing us to use the courts for free, and Lancashire Police for providing police cadets to help us record the lengths everybody ran.

“I am grateful for all the great prizes which organisations and companies gave me, the children and adults who took part, and everybody who kindly donated something.”

Squash players also held two fund-raising matches for the Preston-based heart charity, gathering a further £150.

John added: “Despite many of our children not available because they were playing in national and county events, we still managed to raise £150.

“My personal thanks to Jodi Evans, of Euxton Park Golf Centre, who sponsored the junior event, and Paul Kennedy, of Go Cruise, who sponsored the adult event.”

Volunteers collecting at St George’s Shopping Centre raised a further £175.

One in four people in Lancashire are affected by heart disease and it is thanks to the support of local people that a service like Heartbeat exists.”
