Jill Rogerson

It is with great sadness that we must announce the death of Jill Rogerson, Heartbeat’s Chief Executive, who died on the 4th September 2018, following an 11 month battle with an aggressive brain tumour.

Our thoughts are with her family at this time.

 

Arrangements for Jill’s funeral are as follows:

Friday 21st of September at 11am

at Peel Green Crematorium

716 Liverpool Rd, Eccles, Manchester M30 7LW

 

Jill’s daughter, Katie, has also asked please don’t wear black, her mum would want people to be in bright colours, mostly blue.

In lieu of flowers they are taking donations for Heartbeat.

Heartbeat HQ (Deepdale Stadium) will be closed on Friday 21st September

In the UK, someone has a heart attack every 3 minutes, that’s nearly 500 people every single day.

Heartbeat needs to raise nearly £1 million every year to provide cardiac services.

The charity does not receive any government or NHS funding to do this.

ALL support is voluntary and it is only because of people like you that we are able to help nearly 900 people every single week.

EVERY ticket sold really has made a difference helping local people affected by heart disease to rebuild their lives.

Without your support this would not be possible, thank you.
