It was wonderful to see our guest recently; Colin Porter who is the Customer Experience Development Manager from Booths Head Office. Colin popped into Heartbeat at Deepdale to have a look around our facilities and meet the team.
Louise Bache, acting CEO, at Heartbeat showed Colin around and explained everything that we do here.
Booths at Fulwood currently support Heartbeat as we are their chosen Charity of the Year.
The Lancashire Sunday Football League club officials unanimously decided, at their October League Meeting, to donate £250.00 to Heartbeat in memory of Jim Bryson who died on 31 August.
Jim, who had served on the management committee of the league for 43 years, was a keen supporter of the Heartbeat (the League’s adopted charity) and he was instrumental in raising a substantial amount for them in recent years.

Val says “Cycled 1050 miles in total because we took the quiet roads, not the direct route. Most of the trip was completed in stages in November. We raised £800 pounds sponsorship from friends and supporters.
Thanks for all the support received.
£410 was raised by the ladies of Rossendale Golf Club in various events through the year. Total amount so far about £1200. This includes £160 on the just giving page.
An absolutely fantastic achievement! Well done Val and Keith, and thank you both so much for your amazing support! We cannot thank you enough!!
Val has been Lady Captain at Rossendale Golf Club and has supported Heartbeat during the year in memory of Peter Ashcroft.
The golf season finished at the end of October 2017, immediately after closing day, Val and Keith travelled up to John o Groats to get on their bikes and cycle to Land’s End.
Val said, ‘The challenge is very dependent on weather conditions so will be completed in three or four stages but we hope to complete the whole journey during November. We are travelling on quiet roads and tracks and the total distance will be about 1,500 km.
I am hoping to raise funds for a couple of charities and you can donate here to support Heartbeat. I will post updates on our progress as we go.’
Our very own Heartbeat Hero, Sian, tackled the 2017 AJ Bell London Triathlon and conquered it, Olympic distance no less!!
This Olympic triathlon course is a big event in the triathlon calendar, against really strong athletes.
Sian said… “I am absolutely made up with a time of 2:56, I loved every minute (the hardest part was getting out of my wetsuit) I had amazing support from the Heartbeat Team, my family and TSB.
So, onto the next challenge, it’s going to be a big one for Heartbeat’s 40th Birthday!”
“I just wanted to say a massive thank you to everyone who took time to wish me luck and to also sponsor me, I managed to raise more than £550 …. so, I am hoping to use that money specifically for a piece of kit for once of our gyms.”
Well done Sian! You’re an inspiration!
Huge thanks to TSB, who nominated Heartbeat to be one of their charities of the year for 2017. They kindly offered Heartbeat a place in the Triathlon. 100 TSB employees and 30 charity partners took part in the 2017 AJ Bell London Triathlon, raising funds for many great causes.
