Heartbeat’s 2018 Winter Raffle

Celebrating 40 years with 40 cash prizes to give away!

2018 saw Heartbeat celebrate 40 years of service. That’s 40 amazing years supporting local people affected by heart disease.

It is your support that has allowed us to do this, and your support that keeps us going – thank you so much.

To celebrate this milestone and as a way of saying thank you, this years’ Winter Raffle will give away a top prize of £1,500 and 40 other cash prizes! This years’ raffle will see more prize winners than ever!!

Even if you buy just ONE ticket you will still be helping local people affected by heart disease.

In the UK, someone has a heart attack every 3 minutes, that’s nearly 500 people every single day, and your support today, no matter how many tickets you buy, ensures that vital cardiac rehabilitation is available, when it is needed.

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

Heartbeat does not receive any government or NHS funding to do this. ALL our support is voluntary and it is only because of people like you that we are able to help more than 900 people every single week.

We know at this time of year you will be flooded with worthy charitable requests

There are so many good causes out there, and we know it is hard to donate to each and every one.

Our Winter Raffle tries to give you something back in return for your donation with 40 cash prizes up for grabs. So, if you can support us again in any way, please enter the Heartbeat Raffle and be in with a chance of winning a prize.

We don’t expect you to buy or sell ALL the raffle tickets enclosed

We’ve enclosed a book of raffle tickets for you to buy, or sell on to your family, friends and colleagues, BUT do not feel any pressure to buy or sell them all. Anything you can afford to do can make an amazing difference here at Heartbeat.

Just complete the form at the bottom of this letter and send it back together with your ticket stubs and payment in the FREEPOST envelope provided!

Send your replies back to us quickly, and you will be entered into an extra draw and could win a £50 M&S voucher – so don’t put it off, send your reply back to us today and get your tickets in the draw for Friday 7th December.

Good luck!!!

 

 

Albert’s Poem

Happy 86th Birthday Albert!

Albert is a member at our Burscough Class and he has written this fantastic poem about Heartbeat, his fellow class members and his instructor, Debbie.

On Mondays and Wednesdays and Fridays we gather,

To torture ourselves and work up a lather.

We’re medical misfits with frail broken hearts,

But there’s some who would say were a bunch of old farts.

 

There’s Steve, Graham and Julian, Alan and Wayne,

And Albert, the old git, a bit of a pain.

There’s two what come from Tartleton,

By gum they talk queer

You could do with an interpreter

To translate what you hear.

 

To confuse matters further, four Davids we’ve got

Which by anyones standards is quite a lot.

We’ve Hairy and Posh and to add to the farce, 

and by his own admission, there’s Pain in the arse.

 

Busy David is the other and Keith joins in too,

but he doesn’t blaspheme like the rest of the crew.

 

We’re a bit short on ladies, but four make a show,

There’s Lynn and there’s Julie, Betty and Jo.

 

Not forgetting our Debbie, our mentor Supreme

Whose love life intrigues us, you know what I mean.

She really keeps us on our toes

She really beats the drum,

Whilst we all gaze in rapture 

At the glory of her bum.

 

So we try our best and we enjoy a good joke,

And with that and God willing, we can put off that stroke !!

Preston 10k and Family Fun Run

Heartbeat are blessed to have a fantastic supporter called Kelly Baines, who is a nurse on the Coronary Care Unit at RPH.

Last year with her friends they raised an amazing £850 by undertaking the Yorkshire 2 peaks walk.

This year Kelly kindly organised an Afternoon Tea and Charity Evening to raise funds for Heartbeat on Saturday 12th May at the Preston Marriott Hotel at Broughton.
