the Sponsored Walk has been and gone and once again we had fine
weather for it even though it was raining quite heavy on the west
side ofLeedsand in Bradford.
We had a bit more competition this year on the day, the Leeds Half
Marathon didn`t make it easy to get across the city up to Round
hay Park because a lot of the city centre was closed off.There was
also competition from British Heart Foundation as they had a walk
along the Leeds and Liverpool canal.
I don`t know if it was a good idea to have the stalls all inside
the mansion building this year instead of a marquee outside as we
didn`t seem to have a presence in the park, but at least we saved
quite a bit of money by not hiring the marquee, so we might have
to have a think about that for next year.This year was our 20thwalk
and it has been a good money raiser for us in fact that and the
Christmas draw are our main fund raising projects.
Writing about Christmas draw reminds me that I should thank Jack
Calvert, the Assistant Treasurer for all the work he has done over
the years with regard to the Christmas Draw.It`s not been easy but
Jack, with the help of his wife Brenda , has done a very good job
so a big thank you to you both.
I would now like to take this opportunityto thank all those people
who worked so hard in setting up the sponsored walk, all those who
took part and all the generous people who sponsored them.
The next time I write to you will be when we send out the results
of the Christmas Draw.I write this because by the time you are reading
this there will only be just over 10 weeks to Christmas and I just
thought you might like to know that.
celebrate our 20th Sponsored Walk after a dreadful week of weather
the event was blessed with a pretty nice day. I am sure our walkers
were delighted with the medal and the Certificate to Commemorate
the Event, although numbers were disappointingly low. I believe
we will have raised a nice sum of money for the event. The use of
the two Educational Rooms in the Mansion was really appreciated
for the Registration and Stalls. A full summary will be given inside
My grateful thanks to sponsors Morrish &Co, City Press, Wilscaff,
Whingate Stores and the many who donated items for our Raffle and
Also all those who worked on the day and the many staff of the wards
and units at the LGI who worked and walked on be half of our Charity.
Finally to all our walkers a big thank you

find enclosed a cheque for £350-00 in aid of the Take Heart
this year, my sister Emma and I completed the Bath Half Marathon
and collected sponsorship for this in aid of our cousin, James Clough,
who sadly passed away while being treated at Leeds Infirmary last
year. Despite his condition, James lived his life to the full, often
overcoming some fairly tough obstacles and we wanted to attempt
something in his memory that was just a little difficult for us.
As it was a particularly cold, wet and muddy day, this more than
proved to be the case, but we achieved our goal and so have been
able to raise the money promised to us. We hope this will go at
least a little way in helping with the fantastic work the team at
Leeds do and which I know James and his parents were always so appreciative
and Emma Holloway
find enclosed a cheque for £110-00.
On Monday 9th June my Dad had a triple heart bypass.
On Friday 4th July My partner Jason and I got married in Mauritius.
When we got home we had a blessing in the village church and a party
for all our family and friends. Thanks to the wonderful efforts
of all the staff at the LGI my Dad was able to be there looking
better than he has done in years.
We raised money by charging our guests £1 to guess the weight
of the cake. The winner donated the £20 prize money back to
the charity pot. The cake weighed 21 lbs 8oz.
Thank you once again to all the fantastic staff and volunteers for
their hard work

Dear Mr McLean
After “dragging” myself round the 26.2 miles of the
London Marathon, just one month ago, I have pleasure in sending
you cheques for £714-61 towards the Take Heart Appeal.
was very grateful to you all for supporting my Dad –Peter
Thomas when he spent time having heart valves replaced and lots
of other help, over the past 18 months. It seemed logical to raise
money for your charity, to say a big thank you. I hope the money
helps you to help more patients at the LGI.
of my friends donated money via the website (N Harling £50-00
and O Ashford 10-00) so my total was £774-61 (Yippee!!).
