...Making life better for Yorkshire Heart Patients

SPONSORSHIP PAGE FOR
JOCELYN PAYNE

Jocelyn contacted us to tell us she isrunning the London Marathon in April 2011. She is doing this to raise money for Take Heart and her reasons are very moving.

A young friend of hers, Calum Wass, sadly passed away in the summer of 2010 due to a heart condition. Calum's family highly praised the support which Take Heart gave them over their very difficult time.

Jocelyn would like to run the marathon in memory of Cal and to raise money for us.

Thank you so much Jocelyn. It is heartbreaking to hear of events like this although we take comfort from the fact that we were able to help a little.

If you would like to sponsor Jocelyn, her page for donations is on Virgin Money Giving - just click here :

UPDATE 20 FEBRUARY 2011

Hello,

I thought I would let you know how I am getting on. With 8 weeks to go until the marathon I am up to 76 miles a week, with my longest runs at 20 miles. I've had some very difficult training sessions, but knowing I'm doing this for such a good cause is giving me strength to carry on when I feel like giving up!

A friend suggested I aim to raise £500 for Take Heart. I initially thought this was a bit ambitious, but so far I have raised £230 sponsorship, not counting gift aid! I am so pleased to be able to do this!

Thank you for giving me this opportunity.

Jocelyn

It is us who should be thanking you Jocelyn. We're very grateful!
