...Making life better for Yorkshire Heart Patients


Hello all - Over the weekend I managed to complete my charity ride to Saltburn for the Take Heart charity in 8hrs 30mins covering a total of 90miles, It was a very long and hard day but we managed to raise over £1300. Thanks to everyone who sponsored me. Phil Murgatroyd

They managed to complete the cycle ride and we will commence collecting all the money in. I am sure you will agree, it's a tremendous achievement for Phil after being so ill. We are so proud of him.

My son Philip was a patient back in January 2009 when he received a new valve thanks to the efforts of a brilliant surgical team.

He is constantly striving to improve his fitness and would like to do a sponsored cycle ride from Queensbury Bradford to Saltburn.

All funds raised will be handed over to Take Heart in gratitude for the medical attention he received in his lifesaving operation

On Saturday 29th May, together with friends and members of my family, I will attempt to cycle from Queensbury to Saltburn to raise money for Take Heart.

I've had two heart operations already and will need more throughout my lifetime so I thought it about time I tried to raise some money for Take Heart who are dedicated to providing comfort and care for patients and their families at the Yorkshire Heart Centre.

The ride I hope to do is about 90 miles and I plan to do it in one day, on 29th May.

It will be a hard but fun challenge,
