The Charity of the Yorkshire Heart Centre
My husband, Barry, had a major cardiac arrest on the 12th June, He was taken into the Yorkshire Heart Centre at LGI Resus, then moved into Intensive Care, High Dependency and finally on to Ward 18. There is no doubt that all those involved helped to save my husband's life, for which we as a family are truly grateful. As a token of our appreciation, this is one way we can say "Thankyou" for all the care and support that was given to us in our time of need. Our grandson Ben Matthews and our Son Darren Elliott are doing the B.U.P.A.Great Yorkshire Run in Sheffield and it would be wonderful if you could support them.. Pauline Elliott. The run is over and the donations are still coming in. Pauline tells us that the original target was £500 but it looks as if this may be doubled. Very many thanks lads. We appreciate it very much and rest assured, the money will go to making a difference for patients and staff at the Yorkshire Heart Centre. IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO SPONSOR DARREN AND BEN,
