The Charity of the Yorkshire Heart Centre
TAKE HEART 2013 Sponsored Walk
The 25th Annual Sponsored Walk was held in Roundhay Park on Sunday 1st September. What promised to be a reasonably sunny day turned into a decidedly cool one - but quite good weather for a walk around the park. The numbers were slightly down this year, but a crowd of a few hundred sampled the Take Heart goodies in the Mansion Education Centre then, after Dr Greg Reynolds started the walk, took a stroll around the beautiful park and lake. Many thanks to the Trustees and volunteers who put so much work into the event - and a special thank you to DC Plumbing & Building Maintenance who stepped in to supply the bottled water and sweets for children on the walk. One fact of note on the walk - you may recall that last year, we had our youngest ever ‘walker’, 12 day old Ellsie Grace Mouatt. Well, she was back again this year - and properly walking. Her mum says that she may be the only person who will spend the whole of her life talking part in Take Heart Sponsored Walks!.
