Team story

<p>Hello, thank you for visiting my fund raising page. You can help me to raise vital funds for the British Heart Foundation by sponsoring me on this page.</p> <p>In spring 2010, after suffering chest pains I was airlifted from the islands to hospital where I was diagnosed with coronary heart disease. On 19 April 2010 I had a heart by-pass operation at Aberdeen Royal Infirmary. Due to the skill of the surgeons and the care of many doctors and nurses both before and after the operation I am now once again able to lead a normal and active life.</p> <p>On 31&nbsp;August 2011, accompanied by Neil Boyd,&nbsp;I completed a sponsored walk of the Rum Cuillin mountain ridge on the Isle of Rum off North West Scotland. This&nbsp;was a dramatic walk of&nbsp; 13.5 miles containing lots of steep ascent and descent with some moderate rock scrambling.&nbsp; You can view photos of the&nbsp;event here</p> <p><a href="http://picasaweb.google.com/112392999525390348764/BHFSponsoredWalk">http://picasaweb.google.com/112392999525390348764/BHFSponsoredWalk</a></p> <p>By completing this walk I hope to raise vital funds for the BHF that will be used in pioneering research into the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of heart conditions; support and care for heart patients through the Heart Helpline; provide vital information, through easy to understand literature and targeted campaigns and campaigning for change - to improve the lives of children, heart patients and their families.</p> <p>Through Virgin Money Giving, you can sponsor me and donations will be quickly processed and passed to the British Heart Foundation. Virgin Money Giving is a not for profit organisation and will claim gift aid on a charity's behalf where the donor is eligible for this. We really appreciate all your support and thank you for any donations.</p> <p>A fund raising teashop on 3 September 2011 has boosted this fund raising effort by &pound;92.75</p> <p>Together we can beat heart disease.</p>
